The Self-less Universe is a radical rethinking of many deep themes of knowledge and life. It shows how “I” comes to be, how minds evolve, what drives us, and how illusory is my ‘self’.

Society cobbles the rest, manufacturing us.

Le culture si spendono per confinare l’inafferrabilità dell’evenienza, che è conseguenza dell’umana libertà. I modi del confinamento fanno appello a idee di razionalità e di socialità che vedono quell’afferrare come indispensabile e doveroso. Qui, come in 'Essere al mondo', si indaga invece l’originaria libertà dei rapporti tra mondo, mente e medio per conoscerla nell’immediatezza del suo darsi.
