"The Daemon of Rain"

“The daemon of rain is present in each drop which falls after the incantation, as the soul is present in each part of the body. Every ‘apparition’ (Erscheinung) is in this case an incarnation, and each entity is defined not so much in terms of ‘properties’ as of physiognomic characteristics.” (Merleau-Ponty 1945: 338)
