If the discoveries of the North Pole by Robert Peary in 1909 and the South Pole by Roald Amundsen in 1911 were the last great territories on Earth to be explored, these events strangely coincided with the publication in 1909 of Sigmund Freud’s Five Lectures on Psycho-Analysis, a work that opened up the notion of exploring the mind. To explore is above all the act or desire to seek out, to go to the unknown (geographically or mentally) and make it tangible. Exploration suggests an absolute form: to believe in an unknown and go in search of it. With this double meaning in mind, the purpose of this book is to guide readers through various works on the theme of wandering, physical and mental, and get them to experience a sensation somewhere between losing their bearings and voluntarily abandoning them.
