ABSTRACT

If we attend to things only in terms of their bearing on our own projects then our experience of them will be filtered through their compatibility or incompatibility with those aims. This essay is about the experience of rain in the northern latitudes and the work is built around a phenomenological description that relies on accounts of direct experience which are then considered through Maurice Merleau-Ponty's conception of flesh. In thinking through the phenomenon in this way, the overlapping nature of interior and exterior "reality" (and thereby human and world) can be foregrounded and the notion of a dichotomy between these realms, undermined.
