Listening (Perspectives in Continental Philosophy) by Jean-Luc Nancy,David Wills,Charlotte Mandell

By Jean-Luc Nancy,David Wills,Charlotte Mandell

during this lyrical meditation on listening, Jean-Luc Nancy examines sound with regards to the human physique. How is listening various from listening to? What does listening entail? How does what's heard vary from what's obvious? Can philosophy even handle listening, écouter, in place of entendre, this means that either listening to and understanding?

Unlike the visible arts, sound produces results that persist lengthy after it has stopped. The physique, Nancy says, is itself like an echo chamber, responding to tune by means of internal vibrations in addition to outer attentiveness. when you consider that “the ear has no eyelid” (Quignard), sound can't be blocked out or missed: our entire being is all for listening, simply because it is fascinated by examining what it hears.

The secret of track and of its results at the listener is subtly tested. Nancy’s ability as a thinker is to carry the reader companionably besides him as he examines those clean and important questions; via the tip of the ebook the reader feels as though listening very rigorously to somebody speaking quietly, with regards to the ear.
