Ground, Unity, and Limit

Ground, Unity, and Limit

(p.73) 4 Ground, Unity, and Limit
Heidegger and the Thinking of Place

Jeff Malpas

The MIT Press

The aim of this chapter is to explore the question of ground, and the nature of ground itself, as it arises in Heidegger’s thinking, with particular reference to the apparent transition in his thinking from the transcendental character of the early thought to the “topological” orientation that is characteristic of the later. The matter pursued here concerns the way in which both the transcendental and the topological entail a similar conception of what it is to ground—a conception in which notions of unity and limit play central roles—and so the exploration in the sections that follow can be taken as a further elucidation of both the transcendental and the topological.

Keywords:   ground, nature of ground, transcendental, topological, similar conception, unity, limit
