Written exam: Body and clothing

Published on January 14th, 2007



This paper examines the move from a Cartesian distinction between body and mind to a phenomenological body in-the-world.  Henceforth, it discusses how clothing in many ways became an integral part of our body, since covering the body is the rule, since public nudity is considered unappropriate .

It was written as an exam paper in the course Videnskabsteori/Studium Generale (Philosophy of Science) at the Department of Information Studies in spring 2007.
