A Philosophy of Walking - Frédéric Gros

£9.99 Regular price
Unit price

In A Philosophy of Walking leading thinker Frédéric Gros charts the many different ways we get from A to B - the pilgrimage, the promenade, the protest march, the nature ramble and reveals what they say about us.

Gros draws attention to other thinkers who also saw walking as something central to their practice. On his travels he ponders Thoreau's eager seclusion in Walden Woods; the reason Rimbaud walked in a fury, while Nerval rambled to cure his melancholy.

A Philosophy of Walking is an entertaining and insightful manifesto for putting one foot in front of the other.
