About Listening and Hearing in the Perspective of the Philosophy of Education


/Review: Małgorzata Przanowska, Listening and Acouological Education (Warszawa: Wydawnictwa Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego, 2019), 306 pages./

Małgorzata Przanowska’s book restores to us a fascinating resonance of our way of being in the world. It gives voice to the rustling aspect of thoughts, the vibrations of human bodies and the cosmos. The author is interested in the kind of energy that like an image penetrates the mind, but has a greater capacity for transposing movements through the entire substance of a human being. Through assiduous, in-depth and original research that has been expressed precisely, interestingly and clearly, the author develops her studies on hermeneutics and on a Gadamerian approach to it, both focused on the issue of listening. It should be stressed right away that both the choice of the subject matter and the manner of accomplishing the tasks set by the author are a testimony to great preparation, which can be said with satisfaction by devoting attention to the work written in six chapters divided into two parts, preceded by an introduction, and closed by a short “coda,” heart-felt acknowledgments, an extensive bibliography and a meticulous index.
