Martin Heidegger » Die Grundbegriffe Der Metaphysik Welt Endlichkeit Einsamkeit doc

S new and valuable in this book McNeill Walker's faithful translation makes it very accessible Review of MetaphysicsWhoever thought that Heideggerhas no surprises left in him had better read this volume If its rhetoric is 'hard heavy' its thought is even harder essentially daring than Heideggerians ever imagined Heidegger could be David Farrell KrellFirst published in German in 1983 as volume 2930 of Heidegger's collected works The Fundamental Concepts of Metaphysics includes an extended trea DENSE AND INTENSEPhilosophy is philosophizingAnd this book is philosophizing on a dense and intense levelThe structure of the philosophizing of this lecture course by the German philosophy professor Martin Heidegger on my reading follows a six part movement1 The first movement concerns what philosophy is which according to German poet Novalis lies in 'the desire to be at home everywhere' ie the act of philosophising stems from a form of homesicknessIn this first part Heidegger looks into the history of the word 'metaphysics' and what that history tells us about our philosophical traditionThis is of a historical analysis and I was particularly piued by the realisation that causal knowledge ie knowledge of causes stems from Medieval preoccupations around God the ultimate cause or uncreated being and all that follows from that2 The second movement takes a long hard look at boredom and dissects it in three main forms being bored by eg waiting for a train; being bored with eg a dinner party; it is boring for one eg walking through city streets on a Sunday afternoonThe third form the most profound underlies and sustains the other two formsBoredom is an attunement and as such has the potential to bring us to an awareness of our being as human beings ie our temporalityHeidegger asks has contemporary man become boring for himselfFor Heidegger what is oppressive in feeling bored is precisely the lack of oppressiveness on our there being ie our Da sein is not yet burdened it is free floating and thus susceptible to being oppressed by temporality which we try hard to outdo by 'passing the time'Within Heidegger's anatomy of time three perspectives come to the fore prospect with regards to the future respect with regards to the present and retrospect with regards to the past3 The third movement in anticipating a discussion on the animal as distinguished from man analyses in some depth organs and the organic as distinguished from instruments or euipmentFor Heidegger it is because we are capable of seeing that we have eyes; not the reverseWhile euipment or products such as a pen are characterized by readiness for use they are not in themselves capable; ie the pen lying on the table without being put into use by a hand is incapable of writing whereas my eye sees is capable and does not reuire me to 'use' it to see it is inherently capable of seeing as part of the capability of my organism which includes itThat is the organ is subservient to the organism ie the eye is subservient to the organism which is capable of seeing whereas a product is only ever serviceable in the sense of apt or not to be put to use4 The fourth movement concerns the metaphysical understanding of the word 'world'In order to bring about an understanding of 'world' Heidegger in perhaps my favourite analysis of his I have read so far distinguishes man and animal not on the basis of the absence or presence of 'reason' but in terms of their relationship to the world defined as 'the accessibility of beings as such and as a whole'The animal is poor in world in that while it is taken in or captivated by beings in its own 'encircling disinhibiting ring' it does not apprehend beings as beingsA dog may lie under a table say but the dog does not apprehend the table as a tableFor Heidegger behaviour is proper to animals whereas comportment is proper to human beings because we are not merely taken in by beings and captivated by them in a moving behavioural pattern but we apprehend them and acknowledge them as suchMan therefore is world forming world is given to man as world and from this manifestness of beings world derives the logos apophantikos propositional discourse5 The fifth movement goes on to analyse propositional discourse the logos apophantikos and takes its cue from Aristotle as well as KantWords are symbols from the Greek συμβάλλω 'to bring together' with a meaning that emerges from the agreement or disagreement we have with one another on beings around usPhilosophical concepts for their part are indicative concepts that point to there beingPropositional discourse is an asserting or denying which conceals pseudesthai or reveals aletheuein by pointing out somethingDeception lies in the fact that when I assert something I am pointing out something and my listener takes that pointing out to to be trueHeidegger goes on to analyse the copula ie something 'is' something eg the board in the lecture theatre 'is' black the board in the lecture theatre 'is' badly positioned and so onInterestingly when considering the possibility of whether or not the blackboard is badly positioned in the lecture theatre Heidegger states that it matters not in relation to whom this is the case but only in relation to the room itselfTo summarize logos in the sense of discourse or speech hinges on the manifestness of beings as such and as as a whole which constitute the 'world' and the world thus manifested comes to prevail in the word6 The sixth movement is basically a summation of the previous five movements and deals with the concept of projection as an opening for human beings for that which makes the possible possibleConclusion to my review The Fundamental Concepts of Metaphysics—World Finitude Solitude provided me with a much clearer understanding of the phenomena that Heidegger analyses which all forms part of a program of transforming oneself into the there being of DaseinShort of coming into one's own and having the will to do so Heidegger can only ever come off as turgid verbiageAt any rate as a direct result of reading this book not only do I understand myself better as an organism
