Abstract

Using the term ‘languages’ in the plural rather than the singular form might seem improper, if this is about the philosophy of Heidegger. In fact, according to Heidegger, language is «idem et unum», as Ereignis’s original Saying. However, in On the Way to Language, Heidegger not only emphasizes the unity/uniqueness of Saying («language is monologue …; it alone speaks …; it speaks lonesomely»), but he also reminds us that «only he can be lonesome who is ‘not alone’, means not apart, singular without any rapports». Then it is no coincidence the subsequent reference to the known verse of Hölderlin «…we are a conversation / and can hear from one another»
