Podcast of Gabriel Catren's "The Thing and the Shrink".
Philosophically, the aim is to unpack Heidegger’s statement that “the Things’s thingness does not lie at all in the material of which it consists, but in the void that holds.”
Really, it is mainly about topology. Here's "The Thing", which has no bounds.


Except for the misquote which should read "the vessel's thingness" and not "the Thing's thingness."

As fate would have it, at the same time I was reading this MH essay in one class, I was taking an epistemology class where the definition of a tea cup as "A vessel with a handle for drinking liquids" was considered sufficient.
I wonder then, what is sufficient for the class of all things, that aren't merely objects?
