READING 'SOUL AND DANCE' BY VALERY
Languages of publication
The recent reading of the Platonic dialogue 'Soul and Dance' by Paul Valery indicates particularly non-verbal signs which dancers like Athikte make in their dance, presenting movement as a kind of additional sense or a privileged impression. It is just movement, which makes the system of signs and gestures made by the dancers become an authentic language. Socrates, being 'porte parole' of the French poet, tries to explain it by answering the questions of the medical Eryccimach and Phedro.
