Place, Space, and World

Place, Space, and World

(p.113) 6 Place, Space, and World
Heidegger and the Thinking of Place

Jeff Malpas

The MIT Press

The aim of this chapter is to explore the way space and world appear in Heidegger’s thinking, including some of the problems that accrue to Heidegger’s treatment of space in Being and Time. In doing so, an attempt is made to outline, first, something of the complex and nonderivative structure of spatiality—especially the way in which it cannot be treated as somehow derivative of the “practical” or the “involved”—and, second, the way spatiality is tied to the concept of world, and especially the way in which Heidegger’s own attempts to clarify the concept of world also lead inevitably to an increasingly spatialized analysis. Once one inquires more closely into the interconnection of the problem of world with the problem of space, it soon becomes apparent that one cannot understand world independently of spatiality.

Keywords:   space, world, nonderivative structure, spatiality, spatialized analysis, problem of world, problem of space
