Anthropologie philosophique est une mémoire de l'historicité de l'individu. Le je vis précédant le je pense y divulge l. a. «gradation des valeurs bourgeoises et l. a. marche de los angeles pensée moderne». Une philosophie de los angeles vie puise dans sa propre histoire pour montrer que ce qui importe est chaque fois «la query que l'homme se pose à lui-même, et non l. a. façon d'y répondre», et cette histoire lui est nécessaire pour inventer des «formes nouvelles d'existence». L'érudition n'y cherche pas des doctrines, mais une aventure. C'est pourquoi ce qui est dit ici de Platon, de Montaigne, reste toujours nouveau : non une philosophie, mais «l'exercice de los angeles philosophie».Henri Meschonnic.
