Title: De l'imagination à l'entendement. La puissance du langage chez Spinoza
Written By: Céline Hervet

Le langage n'est pas, comme le pensent bon nombre de philosophes à l'époque classique, le véhicule de nos erreurs et l'origine de tous les malentendus. Il est au contraire, à condition d'être intellectualisé, c'est-à-dire réinvesti par la puissance de l'entendement, capable de communiquer le bien et de libérer la multitude du pouvoir symbolique. Il faut pour cela en faire un objet d'étude, le comprendre selon ses propres règles, non plus celles de la vérité, mais celles du sens. Language is not the vehicle for our mistakes and the source of all misunderstandings. It is on the contrary, provided it is intellectualized, able to communicate the good and release the multitude of symbolic powers.
