Heidegger is widely regarded as the 20th Century's most original philosopher

Heidegger is widely regarded as the 20th Century's most original philosopher. Towards the Definition of Philosophy brings together - in their first English translation - two of his seminal lecture courses, The Idea of Philosophy and the Problem of Worldview and Phenomenology and Transcendental Philosophy Value, as well as the lecture, On the Nature of the University and Academic Study.

This brand new translation of Martin Heidgger's Mindfulness (Besinnung).

Martin Heidegger, Ted Sadler

Martin Heidegger, Ted Sadler. One of Heidegger's most important works, this text gives a thorough explanation of what is arguably the most fundamental and abiding theme of his philosophy, namely the difference between truth as the "unhiddenness of beings" and truth as the "correctness of propositions".

This brand new translation of Martin Heidgger's Mindfulness (Besinnung) makes available in English for the first time Heidegger's second major being-historical treatise. Here Heidegger returns to and elaborates in detail many of the individual dimensions of the historically self-showing and transforming allotments of be-ing. In addition to the main text, this volume also includes two further important texts, A Retrospective Look at the Pathway (1937/8) and 'The Wish and the Will (On Preserving What is Attempted)' (1937/8), in which Heidegger surveys his unpublished works, gives instructions for their eventual publication, talks about his relationship to Catholic and Protestant Christianity, and reflects on his life's path. This is a major new translation of a key text from one of the most important thinkers of the twentieth century.

This volume is translated by Parvis Emad, Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at DePaul University, Chicago, and Thomas Kalary, Professor of Philosophy at Suvidya College, Bangalore.

If you've read the Contributions to Philosophy, you are probably in the same boat as a lot of readers who are left scratching their heads wondering if the great man was entirely in his right mind when he wrote it. Thank you Parvis Emad and Thomas Kalary for translating Besinnung. This work (Besinnung is Mindfulness or meditation) goes on to further develop and explain what was started in the Contributions. If you've spent the time to get through the Beitrage, you need to go on to Besinnung and Ereignis (the Event) to understand the "Turning" in the direction of Heidegger's thought. It will be well worth your while. You will then understand that there never was a turning in the first place!

Mindfulness is the second of Heidegger's three being-historical treatises, Contributions being the first and The Event being the third. Contributions and The Event are written in an experimental and obscure style differing from the lucid, flowing prose in Mindfulness. Mindfulness is a good place to start if you want the other two volumes to make more sense. The first two-hundred or so pages are a warm up, repeating the same idea again and again, which isn't a bad thing. Then, once the reader is settled into what mindfulness really means for Heidegger, he hits you with some of the best pages in his body of work. There are some brilliant passages critiquing the representational approach to philosophy.

Parvis Emad's translations of Heidegger are controversial, especially of the Contributions, for making Heidegger totally unreadable. I would add that Emad doesn't help himself here by translating by Besinnung, the German title of the book, meaning "consciousness" in the New Age idiom of "mindfulness." "Awareness" might have been better, even the German word it is Bewusstsein, not Besinnung, given the hippie connotations consciousness has had since the 60s. The two appendices are invaluable, and I bought this book for them alone. If there is an Indiana UP edition of any trnaslation published by Athelone, COntinuum, I would get the Indiana UP edition.

Nobody but the Tibetans does foundational ontology like Heidegger, making ground as he discloses it. Heidegger pushes forward, and pegs out, the theatre of being, reformulating the language of being to make things stand anew in our relationship toward them and in the institution of our being through them. In `Mindfulness', Heidegger balances a sacred repetitive patience with determination - and occasional frustration with his critics' oblivion. With great strength he hefts the clearing of being, and holds it open. Those who like philosophers to stick to the pre-existing definitions of words are often frustrated by Heidegger, because he makes way with them. Holding on to the past is not going to help here. As Merleau-Ponty later formulated, new disclosures of being, or makings of being which instate themselves, cannot be broached in a mere repetition of pre-existing language usage but require a coherent deformation of that which has become stratified and mundane and lost its expressive potential. Being must speak itself in the speaking of being.

In Mindfulness, Heidegger makes, stands, creates and derives his ground. He counters Occidental ontology; characterising the archetypal Occidental experience and understanding [the assertion of independently and substantively extant beings seen by a subject from a position of subject-object dichotomy] as entirely metaphysical, on untenable and unexamined ground. He clears this away for an alternative position of knowing, in a less alienated experience that knows and sees the prior root of the accumulation of this dichotomy. In the Occident, it is the metaphysical that appears as phenomena and demands its rigid, dichotomous place; collapsing and usurping actuality with obsidian enplacements of ignorance; positing denuded and detached objects and abandoning the breadth of being. The metaphysical projections of the West, appearing as physics and physical science, are unsubstantiated and yet pervasive, the primary demeaning of being.

In this pointing out of how far occidental ontology and experience has gone astray from knowledge of its own presumptive ground, he draws a relief against which this misguidedness can show itself. He begs a contrast, which he states explicitly. The illumination comes from that which is not Occidental.

Heidegger does not refer to the information of his ontology as being Oriental. And, indeed, his ground - or the ground that he resists by providing the ab-ground - which is the residence and emplacement of undeluded and undistracted being, could just as well come from European disclosures of alternative foundations to being - in Meister Eckhart and in Heidegger's own experience of alternative ways to be and see. But Heidegger goes beyond naively foundational ontologies in his exploration and placement of being - in not just knowing and seeing the ground of naïve ontologies, but in retrieving any deluded and astray ground back to the here, and the clearing. This constant practice is mindfulness, the retrieval of being gone astray into ignorance.

It is difficult to tell, especially in translation, how far Heidegger's experience and the translators' implications are derived from, or appropriated to, `Indian' ontologies. But I repeat my first sentence. Heidegger makes fast ground here, and he does so consciously: formulating out of mindful awareness and out of a long knowledge of how far any metaphysic goes astray. In reversing the positing of an abstract and transcendent ground, he returns us to the resonant clearing of being. This sits well with Buddhist Madhyamaka advice as to being mindful of the four extremes of positing and presumption - asserting any metaphysic as extant, even emptiness, is to be taken astray from the place of being and the illumination that shines forth here when abstraction is not. Heidegger corrals the clearing, making a middle and contained being, which he stakes out as a physical process of the new language he forms. And he does this in a sort of ongoing time and within the horizon of history, where each being is the mirrored constitution of its ownmost enplacement. Heidegger insists on the need to own the historic and personal relativity of the ground of being and its contained place in order to enter in and be that by owning the `is' of things.

One being which has gone astray into the errancy of metaphysics is technological being. In his descriptions of this misguidedness of being, Heidegger resonates with contemporary deep ecology and green movements. In his exposition of technicity and technological man, Heidegger offers and grounds an alternative to the current mad pursuit of material goods and technology. He outlines technicity's imprisonment in its own blindness to its own constriction of being. Technicity is a total state of having again gone astray from the clearing of being here. Technicity is the utmost metaphysic, its despair takes residence in nihilism with regard to being. In 1938, this exposition of the pitfall of technological man was a vociferous critique of the machinations of Nazism. In detailing the functioning of the annhilatory machinations of the German State in the 1930s, Heidegger discovered a critique of technicity per se. This critique could not be published or disseminated in Hitler's Germany, and took some further time to be more widely distributed and translated. For us today, it provides a template by which to understand the deep negation of being that poses as technological progress.
