101 Experiments in the Philosophy of Everyday Life, Paperback

101 Experiments in the Philosophy of Everyday Life Paperback


Roger Pol-Droit's highly original book is a reassessment of our day-to-day engagement with life.

In 101 short texts, written with limpid elegance, Droit invites us to reconsider our most ordinary actions as unexpected philosophical events: peeling an apple, trying to lie in a hammock, watching someone sleep, hearing your voice on an answering machine, playing with a small child - activities that, when considered outside of their routine, invite us to experience the familiar in startling new ways.

Droit encourages us to go further: pretend to be an animal of your choice, create a wall with your hands, try to walk around your room in total darkness, spend time in the Underground - and observe your oddity.
