Abstract

This paper aims to examine the question, largely debated, of the ontological value of language in Heidegger and the closely related question of its historicity and temporality. This interpretation is developed through an intertextual reading, that relates the reflection on language developed by Heidegger in his essays On the Way to Language and the treatise on The Origin of the Work of Art. The latter presents arguments that can be ‘used’ profitably as real hermeneutical keys to arrive at a critical understanding of those «fundamental words» of Heideggerian thought that appear in the collection of the 1950s, such as «die Sage», the «Geläut der Stille». This intertextual reading leads to an interpretative proposal that highlights the peculiar temporality and contingency linked to the languages of art and in particular to the language of poetry.
