– Mom, what is language?
– Language is the home where mankind lives my dear.”

jl godard, “2 ou 3 choses que je sais d’elle”

i’ll post soon a link of an excerpt i love love love.

But my point here is another one. It is about how this home is shared. Or language. I mean, i need the other to build my language, especially it the “big” other leaves me with an insufficient language about what is happening around me and get rid of an essentialist idea of the individual.

It is like house building: how to change the way of building without imposing another system. How to start an own economy, without wanting to destroy the other before. Tryouts in France seem not really to be accepted by the one i consider for now as obsolete, not over yet. But that’s another story.

My point is to set following hypothesis: It is impossible to find a/its language without the other.
