From the perspective of the History of the Linguistic Ideas, this thesis investigates theaffiliations to Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche in Language Sciences. The hypothesis of thiswork is that Nietzsche's enunciation is an event in the history of the reflection onlanguage. We understand the event, as defined by Eduardo Guimarães, i.e., not as afact in time, but as something that produces a difference in its own order. Taken as anevent, Nietzsche's enunciation establishes its own difference, and in it we consider twodifferent time frames: on the one hand, the one that produces Edward Sapir's affiliationto Nietzsche, and that highlights Wilhelm von Humboldt as memorable; on the otherhand, the one that produces Pêcheux and Eni Orlandi's affiliation to Nietzsche. Thepossibility of thinking temporalities in its own equivocity demonstrates that there is a pathin the reflection on language to be taken in the paths of a tragic materialism - theconsideration that the historical determination is not a result of a machine and motorizedprocess, but that there is something from chance that appears, and that, in that chance,an interval between the misunderstanding and the language, there is still a space for art,for creation, to r-exist to the sedentary senses.
