Toward an Alternative Model of Sprache
In evaluating Torres Gregory's lucidly written study, there is much to commend... Perhaps the most important virtue of the book is its ability to express Heidegger's self-consciously "reticent" thinking of language in a remarkably clear and coherent schema, helping to make Heidegger's challenging views on language accessible to a more mainstream analytic audience... At the same time, she introduces a number of interpretive theses regarding this development of Heidegger's thinking of language that are both novel and convincing (e.g. the tri-fold interpretive lens of the logos).
