Philosophy of Walking

Frédéric Gros, A Philosophy of Walking (Verso Books)

Like a bored elderly person, I’ve recently taken to walking. This book delves into the history of walking as a philosophical action. It’s pretty simple: when you walk, you think. And this process can open up new spaces, both in the world and in your life. Unpretentious and refreshing, Gros considers himself a philosopher of “ordinary things.”
