The Language versus reality. The case for phenomenology and the Deleuzian `heresy'
Keywords:Dasein, individual, inner time, interiority, language, pre-predicative, quantum measurement, reality, sense, singularity-event, transcendental consciousness
This article is an inquiry into the relationship of language, as a henomenon within the world, with the reality of the world as such and the ontological dimensions that underlie a conception of language in these terms. In doing this and in highlighting a kind of interiority of language with regard to reality naively thought, the author undertakes a discussion of the linguistic phenomenon in a broad phenomenological perspective, implying ipso facto a temporality factor, which except for an argumentation along this way deals also with the Deleuzian position on the matter in The Logic of Sense, as contrasted with the `orthodox' or mainstream phenomenological view. A major place in the article has the argumentation about the deficiency of language in epistemological terms, more specifically in the face of certain phenomena associated with quantum mechanical situations.
