Sagesse et langage chez Tchouang-tseu. Recherche des éléments constitutifs d’une philosophie thérapeutique par l’analyse du problème de la transmission de la sagesse

Abstract : The access to wisdom question intrinsically raises issues regarding the possibility and the means of its transmission. In this thesis, I attempt to identify the gaps between wisdom and language as barriers to the transmission of wisdom. The thesis analyses Chang tzu’s thoughts on this issue, focusing on his approach relative to the limits of consciousness – to define what wisdom is and who we can reach it – and then, relative to language’s limits in order to understand what can block its transmission. This leads me to expand the initial question to see whether there remains a possibility for the wise person, to talk about wisdom without falling in the traps inherent to language and, betraying wisdom. This will finally lead us to explore the possible rules of a ‘therapeutic’ philosophy – aiming at making one wise – that would show the way to wisdom.
