Heidegger's imageless saying of the event

Daniela Vallega-Neu

pp. 315-333

This essay traces the movement of Heidegger's thinking first from Contributions to Philosophy to The Event and then in the latter volume itself as a downgoing (Untergang) movement Heidegger performs through language, i.e. in how he thinks and speaks. The essay highlights a shift in attunement and in the relation to history that occurs in The Event, which is a shift from a resistance to the epoch of machination to letting it pass by as thinking ventures into the most concealed dimension of the event and attempts an "imageless saying." The last part of the essay focuses on the issue of language in The Event, both in relation to how Heidegger thinks language and in view of the performative aspects of Heidegger's writing.
