Argonautics: Philosophical Flaneries.


Guidieri, Remo.

Pap. New York, 1997

Book ID: 66594

Argonautics offers the reader eleven scenes from the drama of Modernity. Among the subjects of his philosophical chronicle are personalities and places, and ideas of contemporary culture: the Mediterranean; Malinowski and anthropology; Conrad's Heart of Darkness; Shipwrecks; Naples; Marcel Broothaers; Orson Welles; Mexico and Paris. The pedagogical ambition of these essays are meant to establish and partially focus on a trend concerning the duality between nomadic and sedentary manners of assuming time, space, memory, strength, and destiny.
