The prospective reader of The Weirdness of Being may be advised to begin with this appendix, for here is where De Gennaro lays out the aim of his entire project. For Heidegger, the way human beings meaningfully relate seinsfrxge the things around them is not reducible to the static presence or appearance of singular things to sensory perception; this is already a historically constituted way of thinking.

Metaphysics, then, is always the metaphysics of objective presence. After all, it is not as seinsfragge I can ever be totally indifferent toward worldly things.
He also comments upon alternative English translations of Hedieggerand decides that Emad’s translation as “enowning” is testable as a seed that will either bear fruit in the English language or not, but that the alternative, “event of appropriation,” is merely a valid semantic and informational computation. Facticity underpins all our actions in the world, which always make sense to us because we already understand the things we encounter and use in terms of their being something.
David Roberts – – Thesis Eleven 1: In chapter 3, “Translation, Tradition, and the Other Onset of Thinking,” De Gennaro calls for an appropriation of the philosophical tradition as a transition into the other onset, and, in reference to Heidegger’s statement that language stems from the parting Abschied of being and seinsdrage language answers the inception, he authorizes heidegher to say:.

Otherwise, his translations amount to a logo-mystical theology, a secret revelation belonging heidegget a priestly cult rather than a pathway for thought.
Hence, if we heicegger to ask after the Being or meaning of things, then we must consider the broader meaningful historical context that shapes our understanding of the things themselves. The Utopianisation of Critique: A Paradigm Shift, p. Thomas Sheehan lends support for this approach in his call for a paradigm shift in Heideggerian research.
Despite their differences on translation, Emad and Gennaro share the same commitment to a certain kind of “Heideggerian” thinking and its key word, Ereignisand they both single out the texts of the aforementioned “pentalogy” as this thinking’s “true” utterance of being.

Without these connections, words become mere words, and they occlude, rather than open, the experience of Ereignis that De Gennaro believes to have “said again” in his translations.

There follows an Epilogue consisting of “seven questions” on SeynGeschichteUnterschiedDa-seinEreignisWortand Weltseinfrage finally the Appendix, “Putting in the Seed,” consisting of the dialogue between De Gennaro and Emad on the difference between Emad’s “approximating” and De Gennaro’s “interlingual” translations of Heidegger’s key words. Furthermore, in the Protocol of his seminar on “Time and Being,” he specifies that the attempt to develop a language that would say the simplicity of the word of being itself is not a matter we can talk about, but ” the question is decided by the success or failure of such saying” see “Summary of a Seminar,” trans.
As he states in his Preface: In the Preface, the author introduces his notion of the “weirdness” of being and presents his thesis that being in its “selfhood” is the word, and that Heidegger has already rendered this word into German. The critical weakness of De Gennaro’s project lies here.

The study of Being is traditionally called ontology. The only criterion for translation, he insists, must be Ereignis itself as the senisfrage word of being.
Instead of reading them as moments of an ongoing project, for which the other inception remains futuralDe Gennaro claims that, in these texts, the event has already happened. Contra metaphysics, we never encounter beings as fixed objects that we observe as standing over and against us. That is to say, we cannot experience Ereignis without seinsrfage to a world of things in relation to which language has its provisional sense. And it is our facticity that underpins our immediate understanding of things as meaningful things.
Our awareness of our own Seinsfarge is illustrated by geidegger way we are always interpreting ourselves in terms of who we are. Rather, for the most part, we do not engage with singular things in the present moment, but instead use them meaningfully xeinsfrage the context of the future-orientated projects that we undertake. Chapter 2, “Owning to the Belongingness to Being,” includes the translation of Seyn as “be3ng” and the seinwfrage connection between “to weird” and schicken.
But, more precisely, it calls for a transformation of our relationship to language, and Heidegger remarks, by way of warning, that “The transformation does not result from the fabrication of neologisms and novel phrases” Basic Writings The strength of Heidegger’s thinking is precisely its success in getting its matter to “show up.
What, then, constitutes success or failure? From Nihilism to Totalitarianism. All the problems that Heidegger identifies are problems to do with the question of Being.
