Show Summary Details


This introductory chapter discusses the Continental and analytic philosophy theory of humanities which are the body and language. Language and body most certainly do not stay together and are framed from desire and limit. The chapter explains that Language's physicality can impose itself and it touches the reader or listener, but it does not take hold, it does not force. The limit of body and language affects how we think, and think of, our own selves.

Keywords: analytic philosophy; language and body; desire; limit; humanities
