5 Minutes of Absence
A chair is a thing that performs its function when someone sits on it. When we see it not as a thing with its practical qualities, but as an abstraction of our mind, we experience only its potential function (we feel the potential of its usefulness). Its immediate and universal availability (anyone can sit on it) determines its democratic rendering, its public taste. The phenomenological experience of it alone is socially moral. In the absence and presence of man, the chair is always available.
