READING SOUL AND DANCE BY VALERY

The recent reading of the Platonic dialogue Soul and Dance by Paul Valery indicates particularly non-verbal signs which dancers like Athikte make in their dance, presenting movement as a kind additional sense or a privileged impression. It is just movement, which makes the system of signs and gestures made by the dancers become an authentic language. Socrates, being porte parole of the French poet, tries to explain it by answering the questions of the medical Eryccimach and Phedro.
