Dog

“… this speechless creature from a universe unconcerned with the passions and destiny of human beings was always bringing them a message they cannot understand.”

François Ricard, from Project MUSE – Commiserating with Devastated Things

‘”… the sly animals see at once how little at home we are in the interpreted world.” Where then are we at home? The very notion of home is an interpretation about where it is that we think we are. If we are not at home in the interpreted world, then it also follows that we are also not at home with ourselves because we are our selves by virtue of our interpreted selves. And where do these animals dwell, these animals who, even when they share our homes, know that we are not at home?’
