Heidegger and the Thinking of Place

This chapter focuses on proposing a broader sense of Heidegger’s thinking, which may also be taken as a topological issue. If the work of a thinker is construed as the exploration of a certain region of thought, then the more that exploration proceeds, the more will the region itself come into view, and the more will the landscape which belongs to it be made evident. To engage with Heidegger philosophically is thus to engage with the path of his thinking as it moves not only through Being and Time, but also beyond it. In attending to the path at issue here, one is also forced to attend to the character of the so-called Turning—die Kehre—in Heidegger’s thinking. The Turning is essentially a turning to place, as well as a Turning of and in place, around which the other elements in Heidegger’s thinking are brought together.

Keywords:   topological issue, Heidegger’s thinking, Being and Time, Turning, die Kehre
