Philosophical workshop on interpretation and argumentation and how we manage our speech
Descriptive, normative, aesthetic, performative … these are some of the dimensions of the speech. Our speech always has a purpose, whether the speaker is conscious of it or not. Our dialogues are embedded in those dimensions and we all have a tendency to use one function or another of the speech more than the rest. Sometimes these functions or dimensions overlap, but normally we can identify a primary one.
This workshop will start from an aphorism rooted in the culture of the rising sun, which we will interpret. This is followed by a work on a short story where we will try and find its main concept. During the workshop we will thematise our own speech, we will slow down and discern the reasons that trigger our verbal behaviour and its features. The participants will be prompted to recognise their own communicative tendencies and analyse the tendencies of others.
