Language Pangs

On Pain and the Origin of Language

Ilit Ferber

  • Provides a unique account of the phenomenology of pain, seeing language and pain as inextricably connected rather than separate
  • Includes a two-chapter exploration of Herder's Treatise on the Origin of Language, as well as a close reading of Heidegger's relatively unknown 1939 seminar on Herder's theory of language.
