Human Being and the Philosophical Discourse

Mirela Arsith


The hypothesis from which we start our approach is the one according to which the philosophical discourse is a specific way of communicating the reality. The base of the philosophical communication is surprise, doubt, uncertainty, anxiety, all generated by the fundamental interrogations of Kantian origin: How much am I able to know? What do I have to do? What am I allowed to hope? The answers to all these questions were set up in philosophical concepts and visions, all of them leading to communication, trying to express themselves and make themselves understood. Communicability is the very essence of the philosophical approach. Actually, communication is a fundamental philosophical attitude as I, in my capacity of human being, live only with the other, in full interaction. On my own I am nothing. Throughout this paper we find arguments for the idea according to which the philosophical discourse subordinates an art of genuinely living and communicating about balance and avoidance of excess, about the ability to assume and overcome, about lucidity and wisdom, about credibility, certainty and truth, about freedom and limitation, about the meaning and value of the human condition.
