Abstract

In Heidegger's thinking, a language is neither words nor expressions. The discussion of a language brings not the language itself but rather us into its essence, and makes us gather unto "the genesis of the very language itself." With snows and vesper bells, Heidegger summoned both heaven and earth and gods and men, making them merge into a single world. Likewise, Zhuangzi used the words of Qixie to summon the fleeting clouds in an endless sky and a dusky earth populated by living beings and dust. /// 在海德格尔看来,语言既不是词语,也不是表达。探讨语言不是把语言而是 把我们带到语言本质的处所,让我们聚集到 "成其自身" 之中。海德格尔通过雪花 和晚祷的钟声把天地神人召唤来,使其融契为一体的世界。在庄子 "齐谐" 词语的 召唤下,游气、尘埃、生物、苍茫之天以及昏黄的大地得以显现。
