I am trying to understand this book by practising it, because informed experience is part of the analysis, as we just have seen. The attempt to undertake a current rhythmanalysis in the same place, Rue Rambuteau, showed the difficulties of this methodology, namely, the difficulty to observe rhythms as well as their critical interpretation, since no major change had occurred in the place observed.

I cannot access the balcony. Rhythmanalysis informs the present and is aided by past, but most of all it should give a sense of the future, of its possibilities.

The aim of this observation was to demonstrate the importance of practice in the rhythmanalytical project. In the beginning of the afternoon, the square is bathed in sunlight.

The one cannot be separated from the other. Even though continuity is preserved thanks to everyday life, regardless of crises, small changes put together can account for discontinuities in history.

There are also other rhythms that are formed by animals, particularly pigeons. A lot of people are outside.

Nevertheless, this reading of the third critique of everyday life rhtthmanalysis for some hypotheses on the continuity and the link between rhythms in everyday life and moments in history, present and past.


The production of space. To organise the remarks on my experience, I would like to draw a parallel between rhythmanalysis and the third Critique of everyday life Lefebvre, The sun rises every morning, but it is new and young everyday. If we want to take into account the future in the present and its link to the past, cyclic rhythms should regain their importance.

According to Lefebvre, phenomenology deals with things and would therefore consider rhythms as things to interpret them. I refer here to Michael Gardiner Following the text, we can see the similarities and differences in the experience.

Continuum International Publishing Group Ltd. In doing so he shows how a non-linear conception of time and history balanced his famous rethinking of the question of space. This is the metamorphosis that the rhythmanalyst should accomplish. It would be a more or less well-used tool.

This human pace obeys what Lefebvre called dressage. I therefore decided to attempt an interpretation of the links between rhythms and history, understood as a longer period of time. Because phenomenology uses all body senses in trying to give sense of what is merely present, lefebcre could say that in a way rhythmanalysis is a kind rhythmanalyssis phenomenology.

In a previous post, I have briefly located the emergence of the idea of rhythmanalysis, referring to Bachelard’s intuition. In this chapter, Lefebvre declares himself as the agent. Assuming that social space and time e.

First, Lefebvre refuses to integrate what he is doing in a phenomenological perspective. According to Lefebvre, the State provides that order, as we have already noted it.


Power is now more decentralized, but museums still pretend to show works of art as merchandise, Lefebvre would say. Is it a new meteorite fallen in Metz from a technocratic and centralized power, as Lefebvre suggested in his descriptions of Beaubourg? This statement refers to the architecture of the building, in which everything is seen and its function to show other works of arts.

The sun is shining. Why is it impossible to make a phenomenology of rhythms? And this is still the case today. This article critiques these temporal relationships and reconsiders place and spatiality and their dialectic relations to rhythm.

He thinks rhythms rather than things. There is still noise and murmurs in Rue Rambuteau.

At night, nobody is leefbvre once the cinema in Rue Rambuteau is closed, except when warm nights allow people to linger. Additionally, rhythms may be nested within each other; for example, the broadcast of the local news at set intervals throughout the day, throughout the week, is an example of a nested rhythm. His purpose is to qualify these rhythms. It is the same every time it rains: When it stops working, the tool reveals the entire complex of tools in which it is included because we stop to rhythmanalysjs it out of the context of its purpose.
