Ancestral Being, Part One

4,538 words

Part 1 of 4 (Part 2 here; Part 3 here; Part 4 here)

1. Introduction

This essay presents an “ontology of the individual.” The theory is new, though it has very old roots. “Ontology” is the branch of philosophy that studies being-as-such, or “being as being,” as Aristotle expressed it.[1] My argument is that the being of an individual person is bound up with that individual’s relation to his family or clan.

Some Thoughts on Yule

StonehengeSunset3,344 words

Yule is the midwinter festival celebrated by my ancestors and by Germanic neo-pagans today. Midwinter is a time when much of nature seems to die or to depart. The trees are stripped of their leaves. The birds abandon us, flying off to warmer climes. Bears, badgers, chipmunks, and squirrels hibernate. Water freezes over. The earth is covered in ice and snow, so that nothing can grow. The air is so chilled that when we are out in it for too long, death becomes something tangible, and we rush inside.  Read more …

Un preludio a Ser y Tiempo
¿Qué es la metafísica?

rembrandt_philosopher_reading

Rembrandt. Filósofo Leyendo. 1631

3,690 words

English original here

La mejor forma de entender lo que es la metafísica, es entender lo que no es La metafísica no es una disciplina especializada; no es una indagación teórica o práctica que trata sobre un bloque específico de actos, o intenta cambiar el mundo en una forma específica. Cada tipo de hecho y cada tipo de actividad tiene una disciplina correlacionada a ella. No importa qué tipo de hechos nombres, no importa que tan triviales, hay chances de que alguien haya escrito una disertación doctoral sobre ello – o habrá de hacer una algún día.  Read more …

Heidegger sobre Nietzsche, Metafísica y Nihilismo

bythesea3,431 words

English original here

El tema central de la filosofía de Heidegger tiene un gran número de nombres: el sentido (Sinn) o significado del Ser, la verdad (Wahrheit) del Ser, el claro (Lichtung) del Ser, el “sujeto indefinido”[1] que “da” Ser, y el “Ereignis” (“evento” o “apropiación) del Ser, refiriéndose a la pertenencia mutua del Ser y del hombre.[2] Read more …

Edmund Husserl, 1859–1938

Nota del autor:

Hace mucho, mucho tiempo, cuando aún estaba cursando, tuve la tonta idea de enseñar Heidegger en clases de educación adulta. En realidad me fue bastante bien. Generalmente preparaba un resumen bastante detallado, lo seguía una página, y luego empezaba a hablar por fuera de él. Esta es la transcripción de un alumno sobre mi exposición sobre Ser y Tiempo.

Heidegger on Nietzsche, Metaphysics, & Nihilism

bythesea3,292 words

Spanish translation here

Heidegger’s central philosophical topic has a number of names: the sense (Sinn) or meaning of Being, the truth (Wahrheit) of Being, the clearing (Lichtung) of Being, the “It” that “gives” Being, and the “Ereignis” (“event” or “appropriation”) of Being, referring to the mutual belonging of man and Being.[1] Read more …

A Prelude to Being & Time
What is Metaphysics?

3,589 words

rembrandt_philosopher_reading

Rembrandt, Philosopher Reading, 1631

Spanish translation here

The best way of understanding what metaphysics is, is to understand what it is not. Metaphysics is not a specialized discipline; it is not a theoretical or practical inquiry that deals with a specific set of facts, or tries to change the world in a specific way. Every kind of fact and every kind of activity has some specialized discipline correlated to it. No matter what kind of facts you name, no matter how trivial, chances are that someone has written a doctoral dissertation on it — or will write one someday.

A Prelude to Being & Time
What is Phenomenology?

2,992 words

Spanish translation here

Edmund Husserl, 1859–1938

Edmund Husserl, 1859–1938

Author’s Note:

Long, long ago, when I was still in graduate school, I had the daft idea of teaching Heidegger in an adult education class. It actually went quite well. I would usually prepare a detailed outline, follow it for a page, then start speaking extemporaneously. This is a student transcript of my background lecture on Being and Time. It has been only lightly edited. I added a citation and eliminated a few repetitions. If a tape comes to light, I will put it online.  Read more …

Heidegger’s Question Beyond Being  

6,362 words

heidegger (1)Author’s Note:

The following text was written 21 years ago when I was in graduate school. I think it is a useful synthesis of the material available at the time, but I make no claims to originality. I tried to remove the kind of preciousness and pedantry that one finds in graduate student papers, but given the subject matter, what remains is necessarily somewhat densely written. 

Everybody knows that Martin Heidegger was deeply interested in “Being,” indeed obsessed with it. Read more …

Le primordial et l’eternel :
La Tradition dans la pensée de Martin Heidegger et de Julius Evola

Martin Heidegger

8,727 words

L’opposé de la tradition, dit l’historien Dominique Venner, n’est pas la modernité, une notion illusoire, mais le nihilisme [1]. D’après Nietzsche, qui développa le concept, le nihilisme vient avec la mort des dieux et « la répudiation radicale de [toute] valeur, sens et désirabilité » [2]. Read more …
