Being in Language: Merleau-Ponty’s Ontological Examinations of Language at the Collège de France
Södertörn University, School of Culture and Education, Aesthetics.ORCID iD: 0000-0002-7789-9777
2021 (English)In: Chiasmi International, ISSN 1637-6757, E-ISSN 2155-6415, Vol. 23, p. 303-316Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article examines Maurice Merleau-Ponty’s ontological investigation of language in his recently published course notes Sur le problème de la parole of 1954. In the course notes, Merleau-Ponty approaches the relation between being and language: if our ontological thinking is thoroughly conditioned by the means of expression provided by our proper language, how are we then to understand its claims of universality? The article argues that the course notes elucidate the linguistic turn in Merleau-Ponty’s later ontology. In particular, this article stresses that the course notes show that Merleau-Ponty undertakes an ontological inquiry into language before his investment into Heidegger’s philosophy. Furthermore, the course notes elucidate the continuity between Merleau-Ponty’s earlier investigations into expression and the ontological inquiry into language in his later texts.
