Abstrakt

The author argues that the question, ‘What is
dirt’ is closely tied up with the question, ‘What is a thing, what is an
ordinary object’. Our everyday life with objects inescapably involves a dimension
of value. Philosophical reflection on dirt and soiling is instructive exactly
because it demonstrates the limits of any simplified contrast between
‘objective’ and ‘subjective’, ‘symbolic’ or ‘constructed’. Our relations with
the material environment are more interesting than that.
