In Heidegger’s method of Being, the follow-up to his 2010 booklet, Engaging Heidegger, Richard Capobianco makes the case in actual fact and compellingly that the middle subject of Heidegger’s life of proposal used to be Being because the temporal emergence of all beings and issues. Drawing upon a large choice of texts, a lot of that have been formerly untranslated, Capobianco illuminates the overarching significance of Being as radiant manifestation – “the fact of Being” – and the way Heidegger additionally named and elucidated this primary phenomenon as physis (Nature), Aletheia, the primordial Logos, and as Ereignis, Lichtung, and Es gibt.

Heidegger’s approach of Being brings again into complete view the originality and uniqueness of Heidegger’s proposal and provides an emphatic rejoinder to sure more moderen readings, and especially those who suggest a discount of Being to “sense” or “meaning” and keep that the center topic is human meaning-making.  Capobianco’s brilliant and sometimes poetic reflections serve to awaken for readers the very event of Being – or as he prefers to call it, the Being-way – and to ask us to pause and meditate at the demeanour of our human manner with regards to the Being-way.

Sample text

For the later Heidegger especially, the gleaming, glistening, glimmering, glittering, glowing that is the manifestness of Being to humans – the phos at the very core of phainesthai – calls forth from us wonder and astonishment and great joy; brightens, lightens, and opens us; inclines our thinking towards thanking; and humbles us into recognizing the limit of all our saying, language, meaning – or as the poet expressed this, cited so approvingly by Heidegger at the close of his commentary: Yet so very simple the images, so very holy these, that one is really often fearful of describing these.

The many names he put into play, from the ancient Greek words aletheia, physis, Logos to his own terms Ereignis, Lichtung, Gegnet, Es gibt, all attempt to say and show in its several dimensions the one fundamental matter – what he properly named Beyng (Seyn), Being itself (Sein selbst), Being as such (Sein als solches), Being as Being (Sein als Sein). “Saying” (sagen) is ultimately a “showing” (zeigen), but it is also a “playing” (spielen), and Heidegger revelled in this “play” of saying and naming – indeed, we may imagine, as he walked the forest paths or gazed out the window of his 20 Heidegger’s Way of Being study, meditating on how he might bring “it” into language yet one more time.

With these lines, Heidegger reprises one of the fundamental themes of his life’s work – but it is a return within the “turn” (die Kehre) in his thinking. That is, although his criticism of linear time here is essentially the same as what it was in Being and Time, nevertheless, it is no longer a critique that proceeds from a phenomenological analysis of Dasein’s fundamental temporality (Zeitlichkeit). Rather, his reference is to Nature itself (Being itself). Nature itself offers the evidence of – shows to us – this more elemental temporality in the way, for example, that buds appear on trees in the dead of winter in recollection of summer and in anticipation of spring.
