There is a language game of subjectivity, and reflection, in which one
talks about and thinks about death and the meaning of life. Then there
is the inauthentic language of daily life. By "language game" I mean a
kind of conversation with its own implicit rules of language use, not
something playful. Each kind of conversation evokes a certain kind of
consciousness. I don't mean to reduce Heidegger to these Wittgensteinian
concepts, but to relate them.
