Notes

Abstract: "Language is the house of Being, in its home man dwells. Those who think and those who create with words are the guardians of this home" (Heidegger 203). These words from Martin Heidegger help to shape a broader intellectual discussion about the use of language. The philosophy of language allows us to examine how language has been used to shape, establish, and solidify creatures. As we use the tools offered them by philosophers who have studied language, we will be able to explore the language that accompanied the creation of racial categories and the role that it has played in American society. The origins of the words black and white will be examined and how, through racism, the words' meanings have changed, thus enabling segregation within neighborhoods and schools. This analysis of the linguistic shaping of culture makes use of an ongoing interdisciplinary discussion of language application. If we, as Americans, change the connotations associated with white or black, could integration become a reality in our society?
