About this product
- DescriptionWe are used to seeing the everyday as an ordinary aspect of life, something that we need to overcome ; whereas it actually plays a crucial role in any event of our lives. This highly original book engages with a range of thinkers and texts from across the fields of phemelogy, psychoanalysis and critical theory, including Husserl, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Freud and Benjamin, together with invative analysis of French literature and the visual arts, to demonstrate that the role of repetition and deferral in modernity has changed dramatically. Rather than allowing the everyday gradually to integrate singular events into its repetitive texture, events are experienced w as self-enclosed entities, allegedly disconnected from the everyday, leading to its impoverishment. The book thus offers a vel understanding of being, body, trauma and shock, but within the framework of the everyday as a concept that deserves a theory of its very own.
