How does it feel to read philosophy? Must we be silent in order to understand Hegel? Can we return to the reason of the Greeks by reading Hannah Arendt ? Does Kant help to bring the fluent phenomena to a standstill?
In this project I investigate in reading philosophy, both as momentary experience as well as a persistent practice. I tell stories about how reading feels, how it is enjoyed and endured, and how it determines the lives of the readers. These stories are based on a series of interviews with dedicated readers of philosophy (both professionals and amateurs) on their personal experience.
Listen to some stories:
Verena reads Hannah Arendt:
