THE PHILOSOPHY OF
LISTENING


Listening and sensitive creative leadership go hand in hand. Our guest speaker Professor Matt Qvortrup offers a philosophical perspective. Perhaps this offers us valuable food for thought as we pursue well being through our day to day informal music making in the community, social care and education.

Matt comments :

" Philosophers like talking - and singers like to sing. Nothing wrong about that. But sometimes we need to appreciate the art of listening.

'Hey You, is there anybody out there?'

asked Pink Floyd on The Wall. We assume the answer is yes for there is no point of saying something if you do not have an audience, is there?
"

In this session, Matt will talk about ‘deliberative listening’, about the 'phenomenology' of paying attention to sounds - but also to silence. Is hearing the same as listening? If not, what is the difference then? In talking about these issues, we discuss different philosophers like Sokrates and Soren Kierkegaard - but also modern thinkers like the psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan and Jürgen Habermas.
