Bodies Edging into Place
This chapter gives a rich account the complex liaisons between body and place. A close examination of the experience of the body in solitary confinement leads the author to a discussion of the boundary sites of “edge” and “skin.” The author describes how the lived body is both “absolutely here” and always “edging into place,” and suggests that the skin is both the edge and the most intimate medium (metaxu) separating us from and connecting us to the world.
