AUTHOR

Peperzak, Adriaan T.

SUMMARY

Philosophers speakor, rather, they respond to various forms of speaking that are handed to them. This book by one of our most distinguished philosophers focuses on the communicative aspect of philosophical thought. Peperzaks central focus is addressing: what distinguishes speaking or writing from rumination is their being directed by someone to someone. To be involved in philosophy is to be part of a tradition through which thinkers propose their findings to others, who respond by offering their own appropriations to their interlocutors.After a critical sketch of the conception of modern philosophy, Peperzak presents a succinct analysis of speaking, insisting on the radical distinction between speaking about and speaking to. He enlarges this analysis to history and tries to answer the question whether philosophy also implies a certain form of listening and responding to words of God. Since philosophical speech about persons can neither honor nor reveal their full truth, speaking and thinking about God is even more problematic. Meditation about the archaic Word cannot reach the Speaker unless it turns into prayer, oras Descartes wroteinto a contemplation that makes the thinker consider, admire, and adore the beauty of Gods immense light, as much as the eyesight of my blinded mind can tolerate.Thinking is a work of genuine and original scholarship which responds to the tradition of philosophical thinking with a critique of its language, style, focus, and scope.Catriona Hanley, Loyola College, MarylandPeperzak, Adriaan T. is the author of 'Thinking From Solitude to Dialogue And Contemplation', published 2006 under ISBN 9780823226184 and ISBN 0823226182.
