Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy (July 6, 1888 – February 24, 1973) was a historian and social philosopher, whose work spanned the disciplines of history, theology, sociology, linguistics and beyond. Born in Berlin, Germany into a non-observant Jewish family, the son of a prosperous banker, he converted to Christianity in his late teens, and thereafter the interpretation and reinterpretation of Christianity was a consistent theme in his writings. He met and married Margrit Hüssy in 1914.

Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy (1888-1973) was a sociologist and social philosopher who, along with his close friend Franz Rosenzweig, and Ferdinand Ebner and Martin Buber, was a major exponent of speech thinking or dialogicism.

The Origin Of Speech book. Rosenstock-Huessy served as an officer in the German army during World War I. His experience caused him to reexamine the foundations of liberal Western culture. He then pursued an academic career in Germany as a specialist in medieval law, which was disrupted by the rise of Nazism.

Rosenstock-Huessy’s Speech and Reality is to sociology what Galileo’s Discourse on Two New Sciences  .

Rosenstock-Huessy’s Speech and Reality is to sociology what Galileo’s Discourse on Two New Sciences is to modern mathematical physics because both books transform philosophy-natural in the case of Galileo and social in the case of ERH-into a positive science.

Ravenstock-Huessy was an unknown name that I happened to come across when studying educational reform. But no matter what the field, the insights the author provides an awareness of how humans use language and relate to others through their speech. His sagacious comments, delightfully peppered throughout his writing, caused me to pause and reflect many times on how people communciate. He is a linguist, philosopher, psychologist, politician and sociologist at the same time. He addresses such issues as the four diseases of speech- war, crisis, revolution and decay- and helped me think about how current world tensions simply violate the formal speech roles and opt for chaos and conflict. Speech versus reflection and authentic speech, grammar and rituals, questions and answers, gender and the speech of mankind are some of the arenas he gets into. This book caused me to pursue his other works and I am now into my second book, Speech and Reality. W. H. Auden wrote of him saying that "...anyone reading him for the first time...may find as I did, certain aspects of Rosenstock's Huessy's writing a bit hard to takebut let the reader perservere and he will find , as I did, that he is richly rewarded.
This is a readable philosophical book about language. But don't let that throw you; the author (I wish he had a shorter name) puts the cookies on the table and they are enjoyable. Please read it if you have a half a notion to understand human speech. Reading this book pays relational dividends. It caused me to reflect more on how I talk than any other book I have read in the last ten years.
