Jussi Backman returns to that query during this ebook, analyzing where of the team spirit of being within the paintings of Heidegger. Backman sketches a constant photograph of Heidegger as a philosopher of team spirit who all through his profession in numerous methods tried to come back to phrases with either Parmenides’s and Aristotle’s basic questions about the singularity or multiplicity of being—attempting to take action, despite the fact that, in a “postmetaphysical” demeanour rooted in instead of above and past specific, located beings. via his research, Backman deals a brand new method of realizing the elemental continuity of Heidegger’s philosophical undertaking and the interconnectedness of such key Heideggerian strategies as ecstatic temporality, the ontological distinction, the flip (Kehre), the development (Ereignis), the fourfold (Geviert), and the research of recent technology.
