There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. This was the first of Heidegger that I ever read, and it pushed me to pursue many philosophical questions about art and thought. Many of the thoughts he writes about in this book, he further develops in other writings. Heidegger tackles many deep subjects about the nature of art and how humans interact with it.
Acute boredom due to wordy repetition. It's as if he's trying to vilify the precincts of language whilst using the very same language to elaborate on most topics. Not his best of works by a long chalk An interesting look at the environment of thought and speech. One person found this helpful.
Being and Time - Martin Heidegger - Paperback
Martin Heidegger's philosophy is difficult and rewarding. What is the origin of the work of art? What is the origin of the artist? What is the nature of art? Wrong frontpage compared to the one received. This collection of essays on the purpose of art and the relationship between art, language, and thought epitomized through poetry is a dense but fascinating read. Heidegger ultimately argues that the purpose of art is to mark the boundary between things and being. The contemplation of what it is to Be is the defining characteristic of humanity.
All things Are but only humans think about what it is or means to Be. According to Heidegger, language is merely utilitarian unless it points to beingness. Without illuminating the gap between merely doing things and the awarenss of beingness, language is dead.
Language speaks only when it demarks the boundary of the mystery of Being. Because much poetry explicitly uses language to explore existence beyond the literal, it is the epitome of art - dancing in the gap between language and inarticulable consciousness. The essays indicate a spiritual understanding of the profound humanness of consciousness of that which is beyond and engages with some poems in a way that tend to indicate a willingness to accept a literal embodiment of Heaven and Earth that strikes me as contrary to the understanding of the mystery of Being discussed outside the context of the specific poems.
Although Heidegger presents himself as a philosopher and a rational thinker, he cannot remain so in the context of this conversation. He is explicitly trying to use language to point out how language is used to illuminate the gap between concrete, objective facts and subjective understandings of the world, amd to do that, he is required to use language in exactly the poetic way he is describing. This is what makes him both so hard to comprehend rationally and so beautiful to read. He is writing poetically on the nature of poetic use of language. As a reader of poetry and a writer and storyteller, there was nothing in these essays that I didn't already know from my experience working with language and art, but it was a pleasure to engage with a serious thinker thinking seriously about these ideas.

In the final essay in the collection, he makes an argument that Kindness is foundational for human being and awareness of the world that allows for understanding. Although it is not addressed in this book, this final point about Kindness gets to the heart of the biggest intellectual problem with Heidegger for a modern audience - his anti-Semitic acts and his relationship with Nazism. In Heidegger's thinking, caring is fundamental for knowledge and because human beings are incapable of caring about everything, we cannot help living in a bubble of knowledge surrounded by ignorance.
And, it is clear that in his life, his caring did not encompass politics enough for him to see what we now see about the world he lived in. Martin Heidegger was an influential and controversial German philosopher, primarily concerned with Being, and phenomenologywho was widely perhaps incorrectly also perceived as an Existentialist.
His relationship with the Nazi party in Germany has been the subject of widespread controversy and debate [e.

To this end it is necessary that we should know with sufficient clarity what a thing is. Only then can we say whether the art work is a thing, but a thing to which something else adheres; only then can we decide whether the work is at bottom something else and not a thing at all.
Much closer to us than all sensations are the things themselves. We hear the door shut in the house and never hear acoustical sensations or even mere sounds.

In order to hear a bare sound we have to listen away from things, divert our ear from them, i. Or does this turn out to be the most difficult of tasks, particularly is such an intentionto let a being be as it isrepresents the opposite of the indifference that simply turns its back upon the being itself in favor of an unexamined concept of being?
We ought to turn toward the being, think about it in regard to its being, but by means of this thinking at the same time let it rest upon itself its very own being. But this confluence is not a blurring of their outlines. Here there flows the stream, restful within itself, of the setting of sounds; which delimits everything present within its presence. Thus in each of the self-secluding things there is the same not-knowing-of-one-another. The earth is essentially self-secluding.
To set forth the earth means to bring it into the Open as the self-secluding.
The picture that shows the peasant shoes, the poem that says the Roman fountain, do not just make manifest what this isolated being as such itif indeed they manifest anything at all; rather, they make unconcealedness as such happen in regard to what is as a whole. That is how self-concealing being is illuminated. Light of this kind joins its shining to and into the work.
Being and Time
This shining, joined in the work, is the beautiful. Beauty is one way in which truth occurs as unconcealedness. Rather, the opening up of the Open, and the clearing of what is, happens only as the openness is projected, sketched out, that makes its advent in thrownness.
The default of God forebodes something even grimmer, however. It has already grown so destitute, it can no longer discern the default of God as a default. The essence of technology comes to the light of day only slowly. This danger is THE danger. It conceals itself in the abyss that underlies all beings.
To see this danger and point it out, there must be mortals who reach sooner into the abyss. In both realms, which are determined metaphysically, logic prevails, because the inner recalling is supposed to create a secureness, out of unshieldness itself and outside all shielding.
