abstract

The article attempts to clarify Heidegger’s interpretation of the Aristotelian concept of λόγος, often misunderstood as a mythical and obscure conception of language. As it is shown, Heidegger’s interpretation aims, first and foremost, to underline the potentiality of λόγος as a historical element against the psychologistic conception of meaning and language, common in the philosophical and philological context of the late nineteenth and the early twentieth centuries. In this way, I try to grasp the significance of Heidegger’s interpretation of Greek philosophy, offering the basis for a re-evaluation of his exegetical work.
