What size tee-shirts do you take?

I'm sure Philosophy Football will do you one...

Medium, Dick. But that quote might require XXXL.

'There are times in life when the question of knowing if one can think differently than one thinks, and perceive differently than one sees, is absolutely necessary if one is to go on looking and reflecting at all.'

I think this part of the quote is the heart of it - and it would go on an XL t-shirt! I had this quote in the front of a notebook I kept about 20 years ago - lost or threw away the notebook and have never been able to find the quote again. My reading habits are pretty haphazard!

I think this side of Foucault shows the critical edge and relevance lurking in amongst the obscurities of post-structuralism - on which my friend Dick Pountain is so withering. It's through his website that I found this one.
