The metaphysics market - selling language as soul
This is the third of a series of studies in which prototypical conceptions of language are subversively turned inside out. It has to be read together with the first two, The Metaphysics Market: 1 Merchandizing Language as Matter (= SPIL 20, 1989) and The Metaphysics Market: 2 Billing Language as Behavioural (= SPIL 21, 1990). I would like to thank Walter Winckler for contributing generously to the present study too. And I am grateful to Sonje Ottermann for valuable editorial assistance.
