drama versus philosophy and implicitness:

"And it is also in drama that opposites that can never be reconciled in the explicit discourse of philosophy come to be, nonetheless, reconciled, through the implicit (implicitness) power of myth." p. 272

"The reliance on reason downgrades not just the testimony of the senses, but all our implicit knowledge (implicitness).
[...] In The Republic Socrates fulminates against the works of 'tragedians and other dramatists – such representations definitely harm the minds of their audiences'" p. 286


"Drama, too, can be either completely absorbing or quite alienating, becoming a picture in which we do not participate. In order to absorb, the medium has to be translucent or transparent (transparency): we must not focus on the players – or the playwright" p. 184
