Intellectual biography of a philosopher composed of stories about things and thinkers.

One of the main figures of contemporary intellectual thought, Giorgio Agamben remembers the studios he has worked in, aiming to build up his self-portrait by describing the things, photographs, and paintings they contained. The philosopher sets a task to reflect on himself via talking about others: poets, thinkers, artists, and friends, as well as contacts and conflicts with people that have somehow impacted his views. Agamben’s stories about meeting Martin Heidegger and attending his seminars in Le Thor, about books of Hannah Arendt, Melville, and Walter Benjamin, and contemplations on writing, the nature of memory and love—this is what the author’s self appears to be made of.


Giorgio Agamben (b.1942) is an Italian philosopher, best known for his investigation of the concept of biopolitics, author of the books Homo Sacer: Sovereign Power and Bare Life,State of Exceptionand Remnants of Auschwitzamong others.
