Wonder as a gateway experience

Bronwen HARALAMBOUS, Thomas NIELSEN

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter

Abstract

Wonder is the special affection of a philosopher; for philosophy has no other starting point than this; and it is a happy genealogy which makes Iris the daughter of Thaumas, which treats the messenger of the gods, the winged thought that passes to and fro between heaven and earth, and brings them into communion, as the child of Wonder.
