« As Richard Klein has wittily shown, smoking serves no function other than to enact a structure of desire–of human desire for self-transcendence, for repetition, for bodily experience corresponding to something other than the “necessities of life” required for existence alone: in short, desire for the sublime. », Barbara Johnson, Anthropomorphism in Lyric and Law, 10 Yale J.L. & Human. 549, 568 (1998).
