ROBLES, Darwin Joaqui  y  ORTIZ GRANJA, Dorys Noemy. The listening as existential openness that allows the understanding of the other. Sophia [online]. 2019, n.27, pp.187-215. ISSN 1390-8626.

The article approaches the subject of listening as a central axis of an existential openness that promotes the understanding of the other. It is an relevant issue since that widely reflected about the language and its possibilities; however, the listening has been little addressed so it remains in a discreet silence that is important to clear. The main objective of this proposal is to highlight the value that listening has to reach the understanding of the other and the construction of dialogical relations between humans’ beings. To do this, a descriptive journey is made about language and its characteristics, emphasizing its two components: speech and listening as an interrelated process to understand its role in the construction of linking narratives among human beings. An essential part of this process is the time for which some reflections on the subject are made to conclude with the question of listening that provides the possibility of an existential openness that facilitates the understanding of the other. The description is made in a descriptive, reflective and hermeneutic way, with the support of the ideas of the main authors of the Philosophy and of other disciplines. The ideas and their arguments have been organized into three essential themes: language, time and listening, to conclude by highlighting the main arguments of each of the aspects considered in the reflection.
