Il Tao del linguaggio. Tecnica, arte e meditazione in Martin Heidegger


Speaking about a “Tao of language” in Heidegger is not only a striking image. Heidegger bids to retrace the “way” of language by remembering the Greek origins of some key notions – for instance, “technique” – in the contemporary world. Moreover, he supposes that, in the beginning, those terms had a “polar-circular” structure, not so far from that of the Tao-symbol. Meditating on this primary polarity means to find a new balance in the meaning of words that, in the history of metaphysics, underwent a displacement towards nihilism. Art and poetry can be the place of this meditation, in order to “re-balance” also the ethical and aesthetical relation between man and Being.
