Thanks to contemporary means of travel and communication, it seems more than ever possible to experience all aspects of the world.
Cars, trains and planes allow us to go further and further faster and faster, while radio, television and online computers provide a huge volume of images and sounds, giving us access to people, events and landscapes from all continents.
Those who do not use these means, cut themselves off from the world, missing out on all of the experiences now available in a drive, a flight or a click; but can we really appreciate the world through a car or an airplane window or on a computer screen? By invading our environment, don’t our transport and communication infrastructures deprive us of it?
Kévin Cappelli teaches in Brittany in North-West Franceand holds the French “agrégation” in philosophy. L’expériencedu monde is his first published work.
