Pothos is an expression of Eros, and in this chapter both deifications of desire are subjected to critical scrutiny. The platonic characterization of them is questioned and an alternative genealogy offered, one that reconnects their vitality to the natural world and the interfusing of its essential elements. Here Chaos elides with life-giving pneuma – a connection that confirms the creative connection between breathing and the articulation of the world of things (see Echo Location above). The new public space that emerges from this revision might be something like the old ‘common place.’
