Biography may be my favorite genre, because it is so effective at breaking down the usual distinction between thought and banal/sordid everyday life. How does philosophy emerge from schools and brothels and poker games? (Derrida was a skilled poker player thanks to his mother, who was an absolute ace at the game.) It’s fascinating to watch this happen…
José Ortega y Gasset, who had an unusual sensitivity to topics of ages of life and generations, always held that 26 was the age when philosophers first start to show traces of originality rather than mere receptivity, and that 30 is the usual age when they are able to formulate those positions in somewhat coherent and recognizable form.
