Sample text

But this so-called "heroism" has all the 14 LEAPING AHEAD UNTO THE UNIQUENESS OF BE-ING markings of "capitulating" before the extant as such, that is, before the machinationally determined beings that are abandoned by being. Where only the inevitable is accepted, the necessary need not have been experienced in advance. And the necessary can be experienced only out of the knowing-awareness of a distress that thoroughly prevails in beings and challenges the sway of beingness. The "heroic realism" - seemingly the highest form of knowing of, and [G20] attitude towards beings - amounts only to the most covert way of evading being.

VI. Mindfulness^ Contemporary Realities of Heidegger Research In reading Contributions and Mindfulness, the reader should consider the following dimensions: (1) Heidegger understands these works as originating from the 'non-representational apophantic' character of be-inghistorical thinking. It is the unique nature of Contributions and Mindfulness as philosophical statements that they emerge from and return to that which shows and manifests itself as it is in itself. Failing to grasp this will lead to the mischaracterization of these works as "working notes", "aphorisms", "mystical expressions", and so forth.

Art and the epoch (history of art and sciences). [G15] 8. On Mindfulness Only by coming from far away from the remote beginning of the history "of " be-ing, free from every ''history", can thinking prepare the readiness for the grounding of the one decision (cf. below G 45, and for the more detailed account of decision see Überlegungen XII, 29*) and only this: whether machination of beings would make man exceedingly powerful and transpose him into an unbridled being of power, or whether be-ing would gift the grounding of its truth as distress from out of which the countering of god and man cross with the strife of the earth and the world.
