Wandering is the result of a combination of all the species of plants named collectively as “Wandering Jew” in various languages. The legend of the Wandering Jew, a character of the narrative that has been part of the oral tradition of Passion Week since the 8th century, associates Jews with the martyrdom of Jesus Christ and implies that they are a people cursed to wander the Earth without respite. Instrumentalized by the scientific racism of the 19th century, the figure of the Wandering Jew was recurrent in Nazi propaganda. In contemporary philosophy, however, the wanderer, nomad or deterritorialized is someone who has the potential to destabilize centralized powers and their mechanisms of control.
