Re-treating. First steps

     Universe reverberates with steps. Once steps fall silent, the world reaches its end. Beginning with this quotation from Vasilij Rozanov we try to investigate walking and its various modalities which constitute also modalities of thinking. Reading Nietzsche's dedication to walking and nomadic lifestyle, we understand walking, "gehen", as a specific harmony achieved between body and thought as well as between body and its situatedness. It is a peculiar manner of walking, the irrationality of Chaplin's or Groucho Marx's gait, that marks a point of crisis in the systematic structure of the organization of Western society.

     Keywords: walking, thinking, embodiment, steps, body.
