Abstract

Cet article traite du sens et des implications pour l'exégèse moderne des pré-socratiques d'un commentaire fait par Simplicius sur le vocabulaire d'un extrait textuel d'Anaximandre qu'il vient de citer. Simplicius dit qu'Anaximandre a écrit sa sentence sur la nature des étants avec des termes plus poétiques : ποιητιϰωτέϱοις οὕτως ὀνόμασιν αὐτὰ λέγων. Dans leurs observations sur ce passage, Nietzsche et Heidegger ont non seulement prêté attention à la parole et à la pensée d'Anaximandre, mais nous ont aussi fait remarquer ce simple commentaire, sorte de sanglot de pensée, de Simplicius. Qu'est-ce pour un philosophe que parler d'une façon plus poétique? Nous proposons de comprendre que cela n'implique pas l'usage d'images ni d'allégories, mais une façon assez originale d'interagir et de penser en termes universels. This paper is about the meaning and implication for Presocratics modern exegesis of a comment made by Simplicius about the vocabulary of a passage from Anaximander, which he has just quoted. Simplicius says that Anaximander wrote his sentence about nature of beings in more poetics terms : ποιητιϰωτέϱοις οὕτως ὀνόμασιν αὐτὰ λέγων. In their remarks on the passage, Nietzsche and Heidegger not only drew attention to the words and thought of Anaximander, but also made us look at that simple comment, that « hiccup » of thought in Simplicius. What is it for a philosopher to speak in a more poetic way? We propose to understand that it does not imply the use of images or allegories, but a very original way of interacting and thinking in universal terms.
