Fall/Winter 2011 Vol.9 Issues III-IV



“I am not active only when I am speaking; rather, I precede my thought in the listener. I am not passive while I am listening; rather, I speak according to. . .what the other is saying. Speaking is not just my own initiative, listening is not submitting to the initiative of the other, because as speaking subjects we are continuing, we are resuming a common effort more ancient than we, upon which we are grafted to one another and which is the manifestation, the growth, of truth.”
— Maurice Merleau-Ponty in The Prose of the World
