Philosophy and Social Criticism 33 (1):99-112 (2007)
Heidegger has been taken by many as a prophet of extremity, a nihilist, an existentialistic individualist, and a destroyer of normativity. This article offers a sympathetic reading of Brandoms efforts to extricate Heidegger from such readings and to set out a way to read Heideggers philosophy of language and action that underscores their fundamental sociality and normativity. Herein it is shown specifically why Brandom must turn to Heideggers work as a testing ground for his own proposal of an inferentialist semantics. In tandem, Brandoms Kantian reading of Heidegger is analysed and assessed. Key Words: Dasein Martin Heidegger language normativity objectivity pragmatics referential Richard Rorty semantics sociality world-disclosing.
