Example text

The question asks whether my sentence is in fact a sentence of a certain type, that is, whether the sentence fits or corresponds with a specified category of referential or representational sentences. " But the objectivist presuppositions that are taken-for-granted in this question can be problematized by contrasting it with a question growing from a similar inquiry motive but presupposing a hermeneutic orientation. " Then the suggestion embedded in the question can be followedor the challenge taken upand it can be shown what happens when one attempts to do this, that is, to view the sentence as a representation of something nonlinguistic.

Thus there is a continuing tension between the repeated and the unrepeatable, between law and surprise. But this dynamic is nonetheless constitutive. Understanding is the human's way of being, and language is our way of understanding. By engaging both proactively and responsively in the play of language events, humans participate in the constituting of the coherent spheres we inhabit. And the paradigm form of this dynamic is conversation. Language as Paradigmatically Articulate Contact The "Articulate Contact" part of the label for the view of the nature of language I am proposing highlights the two central features of the constitutive linguistic events I have just described.

98 Conversation is one common event which is characterized by this dynamic of play as Erfahrung. In Gadamer's words: We say that we 'conduct' a conversation, but the more genuine a conversation is, the less its conduct lies within the will of either partner. Rather, it is generally more correct to say that we fall into conversation, or even that we become involved in it. 99 In a parallel way, the dynamic of worlding is constrainedand sometimes even determinedby the forces of culture, tradition, and context.
