Slow Activism: Listening to the Pain and Praise of Others

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

For what is needed is a philosophy of listening. But is this a possibility? If philosophy has its very roots intertwined with a secret vision of Being that has resulted in the present state of visualism, can it listen with equal profundity? What is called for is an ontology of the auditory.
