An engaging collection of late-life reflections and quick thoughts, a book unlike any other Agamben book.

What can the senses of an attentive philosopher see, hear, and learn that can, in turn, teach us about living better lives? Perhaps it's less a matter of asking what and more a matter of asking how. These latest reflections from Italy's foremost philosopher form a sort of travelogue that chronicles Giorgio Agamben's profound interior journey. Here, with unprecedented immediacy, Agamben shares his final remarks, late-life observations, and reflections about his life that flashed before his eyes. What did he see in that brief flash? What did he stay faithful to? What remains of all those places, friends, and teachers?
