With the appearance of Beitriige zur Philosophie (Vom Ereignis) in 1989 and a decade later its English translation, Contributions to Philosophy (From Enowning), philosophy faces the task of a renewed appropriation of Heidegger's thought. It is toward this appropriation that the essays collected in this volume intend to make a contribution. The elucidation undertaken in these essays is based on the realization that thinking in Contributions to Philosophy...

The essays collected in this volume enter into the II dialogue" that throughout Heidegger's long and productive preoccupation with hermeneutic phenomenology is shaped within the thinking of being by the one fold of "what shows itself in itself, the manifest" (Phii- nomen/das Sich-an-ihm-selbst-zeigende, das Offenbare)...
Contributions to Philosophy as a Hermeneutic Responsibility
Download PDF (6.2 MB)
From the vantage point of cultural history, the translation into English of Heidegger as a German philosopher seems based on one important assumption, namely, that this translation is essentially an interlingual transfer of words between the two languages, German and English. According to this assumption of cultural history, the interlingual...

Download PDF (6.9 MB)
othing seems to tell us more about Contributions to Philosophy (From Enowning)-Heidegger's second major work after Being and Time- than the twofold aspect of its title and the announcement at the outset of a fundamental distinction between the two parts of this title.

"De-cision" in Contributions to Philosophy and the Path to the Interpretation of Heraclitus Fragment 16
Download PDF (5.9 MB)
It is widely known that Heidegger's interpretation of Fragment 16 of Heraclitus is a small but significant part of a large body of work that he devoted to the legacy of this philosopher, and that this body of work is part of Heidegger's extraordinarily large output on the Greeks. Given the available evidence, we can say that Heidegger's work on the Greeks...

If we are to enter the last part of Contributions to Philosophy (From En- owning), titled "Be-ing," and gain access to the liberating ontology that unfolds therein, we must be clear about the following questions.39 Considering the structure of this work, which precisely reflects its hermeneutic-phenomenological thrust, in what sense can "Be-ing"...

Heidegger and Christianity: A Look at His Correspondence with Bernhrd Welte
Download PDF (2.8 MB)
From the very beginning of his philosophical career, Heidegger maintains a complex relationship to Christianity- complex because, for one thing, this relationship is not one of rejection or acceptance of the dogma and articles of faith of this religion and, for another, this relationship points directly to the very core of Heidegger's being-historical...
Questioning Richardson's "Heidegger I, Heidegger II" Distinction and His Response in Light of Contributions to Philosophy
Download PDF (6.5 MB)
One of the indisputably significant aspects of Richardson's Heidegger: Through Phenomenology to Thought is the preface to this work, which Heidegger consented to write after reading the German version of a resume of Richardson's research and findings.88 Two points here should not go unnoticed.
