Maximilian de Gaynesford (University of Reading)
« How To Do Things with Attunement: On Poetry and Philosophy »
Ordinary language philosophy has a troubled relationship with poetry. But we are beginning to see beyond the various polemics launched by Austin, Derrida, etc. In this talk, I shall use Samuel Beckett’s poetry to demonstrate ways in which the relationship can be mutually beneficial. Poetry calls out for a speech act approach: we can use it to gain a more discriminating sense of what is going on in these uses of language. And equally we can use poetry to gain a more discriminating sense of how to pursue a speech act approach: it focuses attention more acutely on features of language-use, some being peculiar to poetry and some being shared with non-poetry.
