Sample text

Almost desperate, given the circumstances, is the insistence on Selbstverwaltung (self-administration), Selbstbesinnung (selfexamination), and Selbstbehauptung (self-assertion) (G16, 107/5–6). And disturbing is the emptiness of what Heidegger is here saying. Clear, however, is the duality present already in the title: the commitment to the essence of science is to be matched by a commitment to the German destiny. Obvious, too, is the tension between these two commitments, although the latter is left disturbingly vague in the address.

Authenticity and raising the question of Being thus belong together. This question invites us to question and perhaps change our orientation towards persons and things; thus it invites revolution, even as it denies any appeal to well established criteria that might guide such revolution. This finds expression in the following claim from the Rectorial Address: “Science is the questioning standing of one’s ground in the midst of the constantly self-concealing totality of what is. This active perseverance knows about its impotence in the face of destiny” (G16, 110/8).

In Being and Time he looks for such an authority to the past that has shaped our present and illuminates our future possibilities: our being, essentially a being with others, is ruled by the destiny of the commnity or people (Volk10 ) we belong to (G2, 508/436). 11 But every such turn to history to banish the specter of arbitrariness remains haunted by it: like the present, the inherited past speaks with many and conflicting voices. No past event, even when looked at as a repeatable possibility, is as such authoritative; it becomes such only when recognized as worthy of repetition.
