When we accept to give a response to someone or something, we start practicing thinking and willing. To respond is not simply to react but to act anew, which inevitably requires reflection on oneself and profoundly keeps one alive. No matter what we think about, we firstly think about us, our past and our actions in relation to the question of living with others. In this respect, we also “will” a future that we could imagine, construct and live in with others in a beautiful way. We will talk about the mental activities of “thinking” and “willing” that shape the genuine responses we give in our lives and in the arts we perform with reference to Hannah Arendt.
