Introducing being in transit

Ron Scapp , Brian Seitz

pp. 1-6

That we find ourselves running to, fleeing from or otherwise commuting between here and there poses problems that most philosophers have so far and for the most part seemed to neglect. We, however, are moved by this reality, one in which the distinction between nomadism and globalism, and between choice and necessity becomes somewhat obscure, if still clearly determined while arguably equally clearly indeterminate, whether an expression of the postmodern condition or the consequence of modernity, or the extended, and typically gratuitous and vicious, exigencies of race, class, and gender.
