Book Title: Speaking (La Parole)

Author: Georges Gusdorf

Book Description:

This is a marvelous little book by a well-known existential philosopher of language and communication.  In it, Gusdorf rightfully captures how speaking or la parole manifests the very ground of human existence as a semiotic phenomenology.  I came to this book early in my research pursuits on the philosophy of communication and it radically changed the way I understood human communication. It continues to nourish both my mind and my heart. It affirms my own phenomenology of lived experience and frames my research endeavors.
