Excerpt: We human beings exist – that is, we are realized as human beings – in conversations. It is not that we use conversations – we are, we exist as a flow of conversations. It is not that language is the home of the Dasein, as Heidegger says – our being occurs in languaging in the flow of our being in conversations. The human being is a dynamic manner of being in language, not a body, not an entity that has an existence that can be imagined independent of language and that can then use language as an instrument for communication.
