Abstract

For de Certeau, space is not simply the location of everyday life, it is its product. Thus, bodies do not exist in space; space is, rather, the means by which bodies are and can be connected. From this it follows that space itself is bodily. This is another way of saying that not only is there always something at stake in an interrogation of space, but that an interrogation of space must always begin with the body.
