vers – 22:00: la lecture silencieuse est illégitime parce qu’elle ne permet pas de contrôler l’interprétation.
vers – 9: une théorisation de la lecture silencieuse:
Adab al-mutala’a – The Ethics of visual reading – a new form of critical thinking based on disputation theory that began to appear in the mid-seventeenth century
« When you start visually reading, read the piece comprehensively from start to finish, and in your mind exact the desired initial meaning from it. Then observe the conceptual aspects through close analysis and reflect on them. Would some issue that would cause it to be rejected [as evidence] disprove it? Is it possible to refute it and to refute the refutation? And also notice the factual aspects through analysis and reflect on them. Is there anything that could be directed toward it that would cause it to be rejected as evidence? Does it allow an escape from logical inconstitency? And observe the things that come up that reject it as evidence and reflect on how to refute it and how to refute the refutation. »
