What are the quasi-things? First, the atmospheres, i.e. the feelings poured out into space and that usually we can not change, but also the pain, whose aggression constitutes also a guarantee of identity of the subject. And then the shame, both personal and vicarious (that we feel for those who "should" be ashamed!), the felt body, whose "islands" exceed the organs of the physical body, the look or gaze, so aggressive, in daily life as in the portrait, to produce a hemorrhage of our identity, and finally the twilight in his evocative vagueness. We all describe these quasi-things, we set them in a (lived) space, we recognize their amodal and intersubjective identity, and above all always we feel their emotionally intrusiveness. Although ephemeral, intermittent, and without an external and previous cause, the quasi-things in fact establish a specific communication with the felt-body of the perceiver, creating the emotional space in which they appear and that in various ways they also affect. A philosophy that is not abstract exercise, but reflection on how you feel here and now, should then recognize that of quasi-things and affective qualities they generate any ontological repertoire (worthy of the name) can not do without.
