It is a set of practices and exercises in order to train as political subjects. It is a prodrome to taking care of “common goods”. But it is also the challenging attitude towards a self-training that everyone can decide to assume.
It is a path towards glory as Hannah Arendt intended it. It requires the participation of the 9 soul parts.
It is a child who is trying to domesticate snakes.
