Hélène Cixous: “Literature helps us learn to read the world”

Hélène Cixous: “Literature helps us learn to read the world”

"What do you think of the state of the world, in the era of pandemic and almost general political entropy?

Helene Cixous Every time there was a plague, people asked themselves the same questions, especially the Other. There are those who do not put on a mask because there is no Other for them. Some cannot even think of this Other. A whole state of humanity is thus brought to light. The government words in all countries are of simple pragmatic urgency. Not smart. People should come to live this moment not only healthily but also morally, philosophically, etc. This is not the case. In the spheres that govern us, we need people capable of thinking so.

Icon QuoteWe are bleeding a nation dry by mistreating and eliminating the teachers, the devoted, not subservient to capitalism."
