A Philosophical History.
Some philosophers take difficulty and try to make it simple, but Ree takes what is apparently mundane and everyday and makes it hard and wonderful. 'I See A Voice' is a stunning debut that is bold and crisp as Ree rewrites the history of the treatment of the deaf, and scrutinises the everyday and commonplace, charging them with significance. By the end, you will know more about the history of deaf education, why sign language is a real language, how Dickens used to mark up his texts to give his extraordinary readings, how historical etymology began and much more. The book transmits the intoxicating fever of philosophy, of wondering along with everyone who has wondered why.
