Sample text

Certainly thinking sustains no-thing. Rather, thinking awaits—unprecedented determination(s) of being-t/here as gifted, as er-eignet. 27. , translation mine. 28. Important passages that develop the meaning of the terms Entrückung and its corollary, Berückung, which Emad/Maly translate respectively as “removal-unto” and “charming-moving-unto,” include, for example, GA 65, 34, 70, 237, 260, 268, 272, 316; CP, 24, 48, 168, 184, 189, 192, 222. Heidegger employs these terms to designate the aletheic, double movement of thinking in terms of Zeit/Raum, time-space, whereby both da-sein and be-ing occur as temporal and spatial, that is, as temporal-spatial disclosure.

His attempt in Contributions is to work out a way of thinking that follows neither of these courses but rather, staying with the experience of da-sein in the passage of metaphysical ways of thinking, allows something different, a different way of being and thinking to emerge. 24. Although the Emad/Maly translation of the word Erschrecken as “startled dismay” may be accurate, I believe that the word carries an even stronger meaning. What’s important here is not just an intellectual but also a moodal attunement to the experience of no longer being able to rely on previous interpretations of one’s being in order to make sense of it, the experience of being without any ground.

I will refrain from commenting upon the new translation of the work.
