Note on Correspondence


The most preferred discourse is that about which the hearer could say that expresses what he is always ready to utter.

For approaching the consequences over the uttered discourse, it does not matter if the unspoken discourse of the hearer is really existent. Without paying attention to his existence, it should be notice that the unspoken discourse makes the one uttered to be conceived as one that is characterized by boldness or courage.

The speaker has that courage of speaking that lacked to the hearers.

The courage is a different value than the truth and, moreover, it does not derive from human power of knowledge. The animals have courage, too, a thing well known by Plato.

If the truth of a discourse is established according to its correspondence to reality, it should be taken into account that the notion of correspondence is veiled by two other related notions: it is the notion of confirmation held by the hearers who see in a discourse the expression of their own unspoken discourse; then, the notion of confirming the reality by conquering it through an act of courage, without being an act of knowledge.

Therefore, the notion of correspondence is often confused with those two or, in many cases, the truth of a discourse is validated according to its power to take over the sense of those notions.
