Nice idea, but much cloaked in extensive load of non-substantive text, while not adding much to elaborate the argument. Does not get much further than the initial idea, unfortunately. Feels like it could have been much better.

Serres-lukupiirin toiseksi kirjaksi valittiin Luontosopimus, joten tämän uudelleenluku oli paikallaan. Avautuu toisella kertaa vielä paremmin kuin edellisellä. Ehdottomasti upeaa kieltä, mutta totuus, jonka metaforista saa aukaistua, on vielä hätkähdyttävämpi. Serresin huomiot ovat kaukonäköisiä ja tosia, siksi myös välillä vähän maailmaatuskaa lisääviä.
