Abstract

Aristotle defines synaisthesis as the ability to directly understand the actions and passions of another man. It is formed through shared experience and the exchange of conversations and thoughts (Nicomachean Ethics, 1170b 10-14): thus we will investigate the epistemological status of the rhetorical consent and its philosophical roots. Analyzing synaisthesis we will work from an anthropological point of view rather than a neuropsychological one. We will prove synaisthesis is one of the basic starting points of consent. This Aristotelian notion is the cornerstone of the original inter-subjectivity. It creates space for certainty (according to Vico and Wittgenstein not Descartes). It is also a key concept to analyze in depth how social relations and the public sphere constitute one of the main conditions of consent and language. To further our approach we will also work on available studies on philosophical anthropology, embodied simulations and pre-linguistic empathy.
