The examinations conducted in Chapter eight constitute the basis of my first reading of “A Dialogue,” which demonstrates that Heidegger has adroitly turned the topic of East-West dialogue, as broached in the opening part of his essay, into an architectonic monologue. In this chapter, I expose the strains and tensions that arise when Heidegger applies dialogue and the Same, the two notions central to his thought, to East-West dialogue. I show that Heidegger’s fundamental concerns and presuppositions have prevented him from exploring the question of East-West dialogue. The disclosure of the relevant problematic constitutes my second reading of “A Dialogue on Language.”
