First as a tragedy, then as a corpse
Additional Publication Information
In the south cloisters corridor at University College London, there is a large, glass-fronted mahogany case, containing the mortal remains of the English philosophical radical, Jeremy Bentham. Essentially a stuffed mannequin containing Bentham's bones, the 'auto-icon', as he called it , is armed with his walking stick (named 'Dapple', after Sancho Panza's mount), and seated at a small writing table. Bentham's remains, importantly, are not at repose: even in death, Bentham remains diligently and tirelessly productive - he is never finished being never finished.
