Course contents summary
Title of the course: About the wisdom of the hand
The hand holds, in the silence of its memory, evolutionary processes between intelligence and word; patiently, it touches things and invents them as it works; it dips into water and it caresses. It is a thing of wonder and so, par excellence, the philosophical point that we, along with Aristotle, Hegel, Heidegger and Nancy, start from towards the theoretical knots of language and technique, of art and writing, of economy and ethics.
