Abstract

From Transiti to Del sentire, from La società dei simulacri to Il sex-appeal dell’inorganico, the intention of the essay is to investigate Perniola’s notion of transit in order to theorize the monism that bears the radical difference between the self and the world. My argument is that even if it is true that there is an infinite distance that divides us from the world, it is also truth that exist moments of delicate and transient harmony in which we are somehow connected to the world to the point of feeling part of the same thing. In order to argue that, I focus on love and seduction through the notion of transit. The notion of transit is in fact able to show that love and seduction are nothing but folds of the same that keeps transit on itself creating those movements of opening and closing, run and escape, grasp and loss, that characterize the emotional, sexual, and loving experience of every human being.
