Description

A richly illustrated analysis from one of Europe's greatest living philosophers.



In Pinocchio, Giorgio Agamben turns his keen philosopher's eye to the famous nineteenth-century novel by Carlo Collodi. To Agamben, Pinocchio's adventures are a kind of initiation into life itself. Like us, the mischievous puppet is caught between two worlds. He is faced with the alternatives of submitting to authority or of carrying on, stubbornly indulging his way of being. From Agamben's virtuoso interpretation of this classic story, we learn that we can harbor the mystery of existence only if we are not aware of it, only if we manage to cohabit with an area of non-knowledge, immemorial and very near. Richly illustrated with images from three early editions of Collodi's novel, this new volume will delight enthusiasts of both literature and philosophy.
