Summary
"A series of lectures exploring solitude and the degree of contact necessary for individuals to exist and create at their own pace ... a key introduction to Barthess pedagogical methods and critical worldview. In this work, Barthes focuses on the concept of "idiorrhythmy, " a productive form of living together in which one recognizes and respects the individual rhythms of the other. He explores this phenomenon through five texts that represent different living spaces and their associated ways of life: Émile Zola's Pot-Bouille, set in a Parisian apartment building; Thomas Mann's The Magic Mountain, which takes place in a sanatorium; André Gide's La Séquestrée de Poitiers, based on the true story of a woman confined to her bedroom; Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, about a castaway on a remote island; and Pallidius's Lausiac History, detailing the ascetic lives of the desert fathers"--
