Flesh of the World: The Art and Practice of Dunya McPherson

  • Donnalee Dox
Part of the Analecta Husserliana book series (ANHU, volume 81)


Literature, music, the passions, but also the experience of the visible world are... the exploration of an invisible and the disclosure of a universe of ideas. The difference is simply that this invisible, these ideas... cannot be detached from the sensible appearances and be erected into a second positivity. (on Proust, p. 149)
