Language as the Medium
“Language is the middle ground in which understanding and agreement concerning the objects take place between people.” People especially as pointed out in the whole translator part of the essay. Two people cannot talk about the same thing in the same thing. Something is lost form what they are trying to convey to one another, and is almost impossible when there is a translator. An objecting is passing from one person’s conception of it, thought a person that misses something possibly because of translation, and the translator has to pass it to another person on the other side getting his own interpretation of what is being said. Conversations are two people understanding each other. They fall into conversation they do not conduct it. Conducting a conversation means people are in control of the of it, which is obviously false. Because if people are open and in a good conversation it can take them anywhere.
