In this new work he analyzes the mechanisms of our wonderful language, and he does it with the lightness of someone who admires language and knows its weight. In these pages he distills a "method" to remind us of the responsibility that each of us has as a speaker, which is based above all on doubts, useful before expressing ourselves, on reflection, every time we formulate a concept, and finally on silence, because sometimes it can also happen, after having doubted and meditated, that one wisely decides not to have anything to say.
