Returning the world to nature
Heidegger's turn from a transcendental-horizonal projection of world to an indwelling releasement to the open-region
The central issue of Heidegger's thought is the question of being. More precisely, it is the question of the relation between being and human being, the relation, that is, between Sein and Dasein. This article addresses the so-called turn (Kehre) in Heidegger's thinking of this relation. In particular, it shows how this turn entails a shift from a transcendental-horizonal projection of world to "an indwelling releasement [inständige Gelassenheit] to the worlding of the world". Although a wide range of pre- and post-turn texts are referenced, since this shift is explicitly thematized in Heidegger's Country Path Conversations, these three fictional conversations from 1944/45 take center stage in this study.
