In Aleteia, nostalgia for silence.
The so-called “crisis of the word” is due to the forgetting of silence, because the crisis of human relationships, misunderstanding, and lack of dialogue have to do with this loss of silence. Learning to speak from silence gives the word back its weight and strength, as Heidegger wrote: “A resounding of the authentic word can arise only from silence.”
I couldn't find that quote anywhere in Heidegger. Can anyone?
That might be because it appears to actually be from Vattimo, in his paper, "On the Way to Silence (Heidegger and the Poetic Word)". I found the quote here.
Excellent! I'll post some more about silence once I can link to the relevant references on beyng.com again.
