By Michael Bavidge


"The borders I have in mind are not lines of demarcation (not walls, checkpoints or lines on maps). They are stretches of territory - spaces of transition, trade and uncertainty - between more self-contained and settled regions. The main topics I address all have the character of being in-between: they are all in some sense about something other than themselves. Philosophy itself is a sort of critical reflection that takes place in these disputed areas."


In this collection of essays, Michael Bavidge gives us a glimpse of large philosophical issues centring round a number of key ideas - experience, expression, and language. Written with insight, humour, and clarity, and underpinned by a great intellectual empathy, these essays are powerful examples of philosophy embedded in the fabric of everyday life.
