Synestheticity

Without perceiving as many dimensions of law and its materializations (the substances, spaces and moments in and through which law seizing matter and bodies) and reading it together with the institutionalized forms of law (cases, law codes, constitutions), that is to say, without perceiving law in its synestheticity, we cannot grasp law in its multiplicity. What we then get instead is that which we have looked (sensed) for – a universal, applicable and manageable concept of law, hailed for its formal and objective virtue. What we get are words, syntax, grammar, once separated from bodies and oblivious of their former relation to life. What gets lost, in the worst case, are lives.
