Summary
"The author of this book is arguing that the range of things we choose to see and value is arbitrary and limited and the ways in which we relate to things and objects are mostly crude and un-nuanced. It is also argued here that it is desirable to consider more person-like relationships with all manner of visibly perceived objects, from classical sculptures to tennis rackets. If we begin to apply this person-like relationship with things, we transgress the Western secular and religious practice and belief that maintains that the realm of the manufactured is 'dead' and so can be treated by humans exactly as they wish without consideration. This person-like relationship does not mean re-animating or re-sacramentalising the world, but observation and exploration of the actual phenomenology of the object should not be a lost cause."--BOOK JACKET
