SKU: op 131 Category: Tag:


A Philosophy of Walking is an entertaining and insightful manifesto for putting one foot in front of the other. Frédéric Gros asks why so many of our most productive writers and philosophers - Rousseau, Kant, Rimbaud, Robert Louis Stevenson, Nietzsche, Jack Kerouac - have also been indefatigable walkers. Poignant life-stories are interspersed with the author's own meditations on walking.
