Variations on the Body

If you believe that exercise or physical exertion of any kind brings oneself a certain kind of irreplaceable intellectual knowledge, not only about your body and its limitations or about the human body in general and our collective capabilities and limitations but also about the ways in which we commune with our bodies constantly, than this is the book for you. Serres, a philosopher and mountaineer, is curious and lucid and just lyrical enough to make this book something of a transcendental experience, rewarding the reader with insight after insight into our complex lives on this earth.
