Heidegger's philosophy of language contains a basic idea: language is relational openness. In this work, Michael Steinmann provides a systematic reconstruction of Heidegger's thoughts on language, based on his early works on logic, on 'Being and Time' and 'On the Way to Language.' Heidegger explained relational openness in regard to the synthetic structure of judgment. Michael Steinmann shows that Heideggger's approach was embedded in the debates of the Neokantian movement, parts of which are reconstructed in this book. In 'Being and Time', he developed a dynamic theory of meaning which saw the essence of language in the openness for different contents and their combination. In view of his later work, it is clear that even texts whose style may seem esoteric are based on clear and understandable arguments. The central insight is that meaning is not necessarily determined by intentionality.
