Proto-Phenomenology and the Nature of Language : Dwelling in Speech I Paperback / softback
Part of the New Heidegger Research series
How is it that sounds from the mouth or marks on a page-which by themselves are nothing like things or events in the world-can be world-disclosive in an automatic manner?
In this fascinating and important book, Lawrence J. Hatab presents a new vocabulary for Heidegger's early phenomenology of being-in-the-world and applies it to the question of language.
He takes language to be a mode of dwelling, in which there is an immediate, direct disclosure of meanings, and sketches an extensive picture of proto-phenomenology, how it revises the posture of philosophy, and how this posture applies to the nature of language.
Representational theories are not rejected but subordinated to a presentational account of immediate disclosure in concrete embodied life.
The book critically addresses standard theories of language, such that typical questions in the philosophy of language are revised in a manner that avoids binary separations of language and world, speech and cognition, theory and practise, realism and idealism, internalism and externalism.
