PHILOSOPHY AND THE FRENCH

by Madeleine McDonald
[Editor’s Note: Click on the triptych below to view it at full size.]

Madeleine McDonald lives on the eastern edge of England where the cliffs crumble into the sea, and finds inspiration walking on the beach before the world wakes up.

What surprising, fascinating stuff can you tell us about the origin, drafting, and/or final version of “PHILOSOPHY AND THE FRENCH”?

Viewing the floodlit facade of Notre Dame in freezing twilight, with a companion who rhapsodised about the philosophy behind mediaeval towns and buildings, is one fond memory among many of my giddy year in Paris.
