Reaching the Reachable and Beyond

The ends are in view at the beginning of a chapter …

Sara Ahmed
Chapter 3 “The Orient and Other Others”
Queer Phenomenology: Orientations, Objects, Others

“Doing things” depends not so much on intrinsic capacity or even on dispositions or habits, but on the ways in which the world is available as a space for action, a space where things “have a certain place” or are “in place.” Bodies inhabit space by how they reach for objects, just as objects in turn extend what we can reach.

Not doing as a skill that depends on sensing potentiality… imagining the out of place and out of space (which Sara Ahmed does further in this chapter).

And so for day 2499
