Wittgenstein and Heidegger: The relationship of the philosopher to language [Book Review]

Journal of Value Inquiry 2 (4):281-291 (1968)
An attempt is made to show that wittgenstein's and heidegger's reflections on language share point of departure and general direction. Both begin by seeking the essence of language in logic. Both come to reject such a view, Turning instead to everyday language. Heidegger, However, Finds it impossible to accept it as a ground. Such already established languages must have its origin in a more fundamental speaking. Heidegger seeks this origin in poetry. In conclusion it is argued that logic, Everyday language, And poetry must not be understood as progressively more fundamental stages, But as three dimensions of language which belong together
