Сознание бродяги: рассуждения по поводу соотношения сознания и перемещения

2003, vol. 3, No. 1, pp. 35–37 [issue contents]

The article of the Chicago School’s one of the “founding fathers” deals with the ideal social type of The Hobo. The problem with the Hobo steams from his particular  social position and is phrased by the author in questions: “what, if anything, is the matter with the hobo's mind.Why is it that with all the variety of his experiences he still has so many dull days? Why, with somuch leisure, has he so little philosophy? Why, with so wide an acquaintance with regions, withmen, and with cities, with life in the open road and in the slums, has he been able to contributeso little to our actual knowledge of life?” A special kind of Hobo’s individual  freedom is considered in the context of the universal social meaning of locomotion.
