Abstract: The works of Martin Heidegger are often divided into the pre- and post-turn writings, with the latter seen by many critics as exhibiting an unacceptable reification of language. The aim of this thesis is to trace a continuity between the pre- and post-turn writings on language as well as to defend the later writings from such critics. It is my position that Heidegger's magnum opus, Being and Time, contains certain problems, contradictions, and vacillations that necessitate and lay the groundwork for his 'turn', in which an ontological understanding of language is clarified. I take such clarification to be illustrated in such works as 'The Letter on Humanism', 'The Origin of the Work of Art', and 'Language'. Having drawn the connection between Being and Time and the later works, I defend the ontological understanding of language, as it is the dimension of language which is responsible for world-constitution, as well as the dimension that connects to the artistic and literary pursuits of human beings. I defend Heidegger's ontological understanding of language from Richard Rorty's claim that it is a reification of language. I also defend such an understanding of language from the analytic concerns presented by Cristina Lafont, most notably, the concern that in Heidegger's works on language, meaning is determinative of reference.
