Example text

37 Since the empirical reality remains hidden and is not in any case considered important, illustration does not claim to reproduce it. The illustrator makes visible ideas that owe nothing to the eye. Empirical observation would not assume priority over verbal speculation until the sixteenth century, but it does appear sporadically before that time. It is not a question of "progress" or of an evolution of rationality, but rather a tendency that seems to assert itself almost instinctively from time to time - but insistently and increasingly.

To this extent our investigation deals not with evolution of ideas but with repetition and constant reworking of the same themes, and constant restating of them in accordance with the habits of thought and the metalanguage of the day. THE HEART VERSUS THE BRAIN Tell me, where is fancy bred? Or in the heart, or in the head? Shakespeare, Merchant of Venice Ill, 64. If speech is derived from an innate language faculty, what is the seat of that faculty? The question is part of the wider debate on the relation between mind and body which has been carried on down through the centuries, and in which Pythagoras2S had already seemingly taken sides when he placed the rational part of the soul in the brain.

But the actualizations of this single faculty in the various languages of mankind belong to the order of nomos (a term which, by the way, Aristotle avoids, preferring thesis instead). The language faculty is man's distinguishing characteristic: Aristotle defines man not as a rational animal (this is an incorrect tradition) but as a speaking animal. The undeniable fact that there are different human languages belongs to the sphere of the social, the conventional, manners. Aristotle develops his views of logos most fully in the Rhetoric.
