(2018) Ontology and phenomenology of speech, Basingstoke, Palgrave Macmillan.


Marklen Konurbaev

pp. 1-12

A thought mirrors the world and is rarely clear in representing its true essence. Being dark, obscure and blurry, it often resembles hallucination, which every person prefers to keep to oneself. And when, through one reason or another, one is forced to share this vision with the world by means of language, there is always an excuse that follows, "That's the way I see it'. However, language does not make this vision any clearer either, but disguises the thought even further and hence, the world that this particular thought represents. The only choice left to us is to contemplate the speaker's own world—the vast vacuity spanning in the murky recesses of his or her mind. But this is all we need. Objectivity is not an aim, but rather, the experience and perception that leaves us totally at peace with the world, irrespective of the veracity of our representation.
