In Forbes, Julian Vigo on hypertrophic subjectivity.
[O]nce language is seized and mandated, our ability to cogitate individually is diminished if not entirely removed. How we conceive of ourselves and the world, similar to Heidegger’s elaboration, is embedded within language. Our intelligibility to and of the Other is essentially part of a larger linguistic structure whereby who we are is evoked primarily through language as discourse. Or as Heidegger writes, the “intelligibility of Being-in-the-world—an intelligibility which goes with a state-of-mind—expresses itself as discourse.”
Quote if from B&T p. 204
