The speaker has, so to speak, divided himself into two segments, like an insect, because of his pronouncement, so that now there is a man before and a man after the pronouncement. The incisive contradiction between critical sociology and utopians, idealists, romantics, and myth makers has thus been newly formulated. All pre-grammatical sociology misses its theme and remains in the grip of social physics—in short, it’s a misunderstanding. This insight—that speaking changes a person—compels sociology to acknowledge itself as a Deeper Grammar of living persons, analogous to the higher mathematics that pertains to physical things. The relationship of speech therefore creates one body of time. There are those like the natural scientists who tear themselves out from the force field of these potencies. They believe themselves to be self-subsistent subjects who position themselves against self-subsistent objects.
