      I would like to outline the problem of sleep in a theoretical framework, sort of from ground zero. So we can ask a question: what actually is sleep? Not in terms of medicine or in terms of biology, but in terms of its belonging to our human existence. The answer is not so obvious, because animals also sleep. But in the case of humans (a very specific, anomalous animal), sleep is transformed. And this is not just an elementary biological fact; both sleep and wakefulness have cultural, social, philosophical and political dimensions, in my view.
