Prof. René ten Bos is a philosopher and professor at the Radboud University Nijmegen. His work features often heavy themes which he addresses with humor and cheerfulness. He published about the relationship between men and animals, about the ecological catastrophe named humanity, about the opaque transparency of water, but also about bureaucracy, gestes and many other topics. The texts might be philosophical, but he agrees with poet H.H. ter Balkt that 'the last slides left behind on a stubble field' also have philosophical value. If philosophy is thinking, then this thinking should be something that is included in things. Or in plants or in animals. Thinking that thinking is only a human feature, could not be more wrong.
