Martin Heidegger, Zur Seinsfrage – PhilPapers

Despite their differences on translation, Emad and Gennaro share the same commitment to a certain kind of “Heideggerian” thinking and its key word, Ereignisand they both single out the texts of the aforementioned “pentalogy” as this thinking’s “true” utterance of heidgeger. This entry has no external links. Let the reader beware, then, that De Gennaro’s intended addressee is being itself, and if he addresses other human beings at all, it is only those few who qualify as “thinking.

This is why our principal preoccupation must be to devote ourselves to the task of thinking rather than catering to the demands of editors, the public, and the universities.

All the problems that Heidegger identifies are problems to do with the question of Being. No categories specified categorize this paper.

Zur Seinsfrage

That is to say, we cannot experience Ereignis without reference to a world of things in relation to which language has its provisional sense.

Instead, things are immediately meaningfully related to the whole of our lives. Furthermore, in the Protocol of his seminar on “Time and Being,” he specifies that the attempt to develop a language that would say the simplicity of the word of being itself is not a matter we can talk about, but ” the question is decided by the success or failure of such saying” see “Summary of a Seminar,” trans. De Gennaro’s strategy for translation is a mixture of English etymology, direct translations of Heidegger’s German including its syntaxhis own neologisms, and others borrowed from the poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins.


As he states in his Preface: Jeff Malpas and Hans-Helmuth Ganderp. Eliot, “Choruses from ‘the Rock’. But, more precisely, it calls for a transformation of our relationship to language, and Heidegger remarks, by way of warning, that “The transformation does not result from the fabrication of neologisms and novel phrases” Basic Writings It is clearly better to say that Heidegger’s understanding of the Ereignis and the other inception is a matter of the future perfect: An Illustrated Study, p.

Thomas Sheehan lends support for this approach in his call for a paradigm shift in Heideggerian research. Instead of reading them as moments of an ongoing project, for which the other inception remains futuralDe Gennaro claims that, in these texts, the event has already happened.

Ultimately, for Heidegger, to limit ourselves to objects that stand over and against us — as we do in the metaphysical tradition — is to forget the way we are primarily involved with worldly things—an involvement that is never static, but always structured by temporality. After all, it is only finite human beings that can pose heideegger question of Being—there must always be some questioner who opens up the question of Being.

Facticity underpins all our actions in the world, which always make sense to us because we already understand the things we encounter and use in terms of their being something.

These elements often occur together in the same passage, as in: This is problematic insofar that we are led to forget that our meaningful engagement with the world does not take the form of our merely looking at things as fixed objects.

De Gennaro suggests seinefrage the English translation of Heidegger’s Dasein should not be “being there,” but “there-being,” where the word heifegger is taken in the sense of “there is,” which means the same as Ereignisa sense he finds in the opening line of a poem by Emily Dickenson. And it is our facticity that underpins our immediate understanding of things as meaningful things.

If there is such an experience to be opened by the phrase “the weirdness of being,” then De Gennaro needs to supply the phenomenogical showing we have come to expect from Heidegger himself. Added to PP index Total downloads 2of 2, Recent downloads 6 months 1of 2, How can I increase my downloads?


After all, it is not as if I can ever be totally indifferent toward worldly things. David Ohana – – History of European Ideas 11 And there is no way out zru death.

It is certainly true that the possibility of this experience requires a transformation of language. As Sheehan explains, our comportment toward things does not take the form of a response to isolated sense-data; heideggwr always encounter meaningful things before we are able to consider them as objects that are divorced from human life.

The book’s title, for instance, comes from De Gennaro’s etymological understanding of the word “weird,” or “wyrd,” which in Old English means “fate” or “destiny. Without these connections, words become mere words, and they occlude, rather than open, the experience of Ereignis that De Gennaro believes to have “said again” in his translations.

To even seinsfrafe the question of Being, one must already have an awareness of what it is to be something, even if only in a confused manner. History of Western Philosophy. Heidegger approaches hermeneutics differently over the course of his writing.

But strictly speaking, what is understood is not meaning, but beings [Seiende], or being [Sein]. The prospective reader of The Weirdness of Being may be advised to begin with this appendix, for here is where De Gennaro lays out the aim of his entire project. For a discussion of these changes, see Ingo Farin, “Heidegger: Chapter 4, “Husserl and Heidegger on Dasein ,” closely examines the status of the ” da ” the “there” of being in Heidegger and in Husserl’s transcendental phenomenology, in which the author notes that Husserl’s notion of the da remains a matter of what Heidegger calls Vorhandenseinor the being of things that are seinsfrahe present, while Heidegger’s sense of the da leads from the ecstatic “there” of seinsfrae human being in Being and Timeto the Lichtung or “clearing” of the event of being in the later writings.


A Paradigm Shift, p. The only criterion for translation, he insists, must be Ereignis itself as the silent word of being.
