About this product
- DescriptionThe Arachnean and Other Texts by Fernand Deligny (1913 1996) is a collection of writings from the second half of the 1970s. In 1968 Deligny established a network for informally taking care of children with autism that was more than a mere site of living: it was a milieu created out of a reflection on the mode of being autistic. What is a space perceived outside of language? What is the form of a movement without perspective or goal? How do we engage with a world that is t our own, a world turned upside down yet truly common, where acting cohabitates with our actions and the unkwn with our forms of kwledge? Such is the mythical web of the Arachnean, made of lines, holes, traces, enigmas, and questions without answers that demand to see that which cant be seen. Long before the digital age of social networks, meshworks, and digital webs, Fernand Deligny speaks to us in his own autobiographical and aphoristic manner. For Deligny, his life was always experienced in the form of the network as a mode of being.
- Author BiographyFernand Deligny was an experimental educator, novelist, and essayist known for his innovative work with children with severe autism. His creative practice concerning the network as a mode of being has influenced a variety of disciplines and thinkers.
