What if we took the plugs off our ears to finally hear the sound of ideas? Thought makes noise, we have forgotten it: great din or slight rustling. The voice of the philosophers, their accents, are part of their thinking. Even in their writings we hear cries and whispers. From the acoustic devices of Antiquity to the use of the microphone today, François Noudelmann places his stethoscope on philosophy. It studies the sound environments most favorable to reflection and proposes a sound ecology of thought.
