*To what extent is listening ‘thinkable’?* Philosophical inquiry, deeply
rooted in the visual regime, seems to struggle when it comes to
theoretically coming to grips with listening and sonic phenomena. It is,
after all, no coincidence that the Greek term ‘theoria’ (θεωρία) means
‘looking at, viewing, beholding’. This programme explores philosophy’s
seeming difficulty in grappling with listening and its counterpart – sound
– as a powerful deconstructive means to cut through some of the
philosophical certainties that underpin classical and modern Western
thought. Can we conceive sounds as objects, or it would be more appropriate
to consider them events? How far can the phenomenological approach to sound
take us, and how much can we rely on it? And what about new materialisms?
Are they more useful, in hermeneutic terms, when dealing with sound and
listening? These are some of the issues addressed in part one of ON

engagement with the world.
