In this essay I seek to highlight the importance of the ‘knowledge’ of the world we get through all our senses, not only the eye and the ear, and to argue that tactility is always more or less implied in the other sensorial modes. Touch is more fundamental in mastering and understanding our social and natural environment than is frequently assumed by rational ocular-centric scholars (cf. Hetherington 2003).
