The Saying Of                 Anaximander

Show Summary Details


The essay “The Saying of Anaximander” deals with a theme that had been treated in the Freiburg courses as early as 1932 under the title “The Origin of Western Philosophy”. By the process of re-trieve in a dialogue with Anaximander, one discovers how profoundly the law of negativity permeates every aspect of Being's emergence as the truth of beings-in-the-ensemble. This process gradually comes to be considered as the outbreak of ontological difference. This is the process which There-being, the shepherd of Being, must consider, if it is to achieve authenticity in re-solve.
