These are intended as announcements, part of the introduction. This is not an article.
With ereignis Heidegger is now able to explore da-sein as that which grounds the being of these beings: the ones to come who belong to the last god. This advental site of existential inquiry is now, however, a rethinking of Judeo-Christian eschatology. The seekers provoke a sense of belonging-ness that in turn create a people: the result of this gathering. The German People in my analysis will be the location of this belonging-ness, a forgivable misstep on Heidegger’s part, someone so desperately longing for the arrival of the ones to come.
The thinking person is then someone who takes back history, shoulders the suffering/struggle/strife as an unconditional state of existence. Here is where “enownment” returns as an acceptable translation of ereignis but only in the context of possession, appropriation, “taken in” in the process of going under.
