Abstract

43 Das Unheimliche: Architectural Sections of Heidegger and Freud DAVID FARRELL KRELL DePaul University for G. B. to be looking with closed eyes at midnight, to dream with open ones at noon. - Daniel Libeskind Who knows what an elevation of Heidegger and Freud would look like? Not a liturgical, sacerdotal elevation, but an architectural elevation. No one knows. We no longer dream of structures of thought in the way Kant dreamt of them, searching madly for (and failing to find) the bedrock on which to construct a Tribunal of Pure Reason. No, not an elevation of any kind. Here it can only be an attempt to devise or design several architectural sections, odd glimpses of curious alignments of cross sections of very complex configurations in the thought of Heidegger and Freud. The thought of each of the two, taken singly, is of course demanding enough to foil any amateur architecton. Such as myself. I shall therefore restrict myself for the most part to Freud's 1919 essay, Das Unheimliche, and Heidegger's 1925 lecture course at Marburg, Prolegomena to the History of the Concept of Time.
