The dialogical self theory's (DST) growing importance and increasing multidisciplinarity have resulted in elaborating several developmental issues: in infancy, in young adults, and regarding significant processes such as cultural transition and motherhood. The chronology given is thus an approach with hints to significant moments within the first two years of life and a glimpse into further development. The dialogical quality of the infant's activities is correlated with heart rate: provocative imitations are shown to be anticipated by heart deceleration indicating preparation for an expected stimulus. Timing and taking up the other's bodily performance show time and form as supports of earliest proto-conversations between partners on the body level. Self comes to be within the rhythm of intersubjectivity, first in a fully concrete sense. DST is different from other self theories in the respect that it opens up to the rhythmicity of selfness-otherness, forming a dynamic unity.
The heart of Heidegger's thoughts on language are gathered in On the Way to Language, volume twelve of his Collected Edition (GA 12). English translations are distributed among three volumes. Peter D. Hertz translated most of On the Way to Language (as OWL) excepting the essay “Language”, which appeared in Poetry, Language, Thought, translated by Albert Hofstadter (PLT). (“The Way to Language” was re-translated by David Krell for the revised edition of Basic Writings [BW].) Language also arises as a key theme in other published works such as §34 of Being and Time (BT), “The Origin of the Work of Art” and “Letter on Humanism” (both in BW), as well as in many lecture courses and unpublished manuscripts.
Because I regard Heidegger as an unstinting phenomenologist who aims to disclose various phenomena as they show themselves from themselves (as opposed to how they conform to existing knowledge paradigms), I shall not recount these various explorations by way of a chronological textual analysis. Such a reading, while informative, sets aside Heidegger's philosophical project in favour of a historical one that focuses on an evolving “view”. This not only diverts attention from the phenomenon of “language”, but it also fails to heed Heidegger's own insistence: “The report of a new view about language matters little. Everything depends upon learning to dwell in the speaking of language” (PLT 210 = GA 12: 30).
