In this paper I try to raise some questions regarding the link between the notion of “accident” and what could be designated as the “figure of the terrorist”, following a non-political but rather philosophical interpretation. I argue briefly that this figure is only a “phantom” of realities which have been more or less unconsidered in the western philosophical tradition – accidents and contexts. Also, I try to revitalize the importance of time and space in personal histories, as opposed to logical perspectives on these coordinates. From this point of view, the paper contains a sketch of how the body “works” if we philosophically consider the configuration body-belt-explosive that characterizes the terrorist. In the end, I added some short observations on other marks that accidental realities can hear besides death and sufferance. My paper is mostly an essay around the question of accident, existence and ontology and the beginning for further work.
