The Other Side of Language

£12.99

Product description

Hardback with printed boards published by Routledge in 1990 and reprinted in 1996. No dust jacket. Translated by Charles Lambert.

Our philosophy is grounded in only half a language, in which the power of discourse is deployed and the strength of listening ignored. We are inhabitants of a culture that knows how to speak but not how to listen, so we constantly mistake warring monologues for genuine dialogue. In this remarkable book, Gemma Corradi Fiumara seeks to redress that balance by examining the other side of language - listening. Synthesising the insights of Wittgenstein, Heidegger and Gadamer, among many others, she puts forward a powerful argument for the replacement of the silent' silence of traditional Western thought with the rich openness of an authentic listening.

Some bumping to edges of spine and light shelfwear, otherwise in excellent condition.
