Guang Yang's work rekindles the central question of Heidegger's thinking on the nature of logos and language, but takes a fresh approach by connecting these to the concept of dynamis.
Guang Yang's work rekindles the central question of Heidegger's thinking on the nature of logos and language, but takes a fresh approach by connecting these to the concept of dynamis. In this case, logos proves to be the force liaising between movement and rest, and is thus able to gather in itself the motion of being. This self-collected force is coupled with the phenomenon of rest, into which motion issues and which has to be reappraised accordingly. This notion of rest, rarely regarded in research on Heidegger, points to the privative dimension of being that also comes into play with phenomena such as spatial emptiness and silence, and is not to be taken negatively. This study also highlights – both with and in opposition to Heidegger – the character of being as possibility, which is not entirely absorbed into the actuality of movement.
