Abstract

12 Thought and Issue in Heidegger* WERNER MARX University of Freiburg In the Preface to a collection of texts which were reissued in 1967 under the title "Wegmarken" Heidegger writes: "Whoever sets out on the way [ Weg] of thought knows least of all about that determining issue which - from back beyond him, as it were - draws him on." This acknowledgement attests that Heidegger did not regard thought as his property. As an outcome Heidegger shared this conviction with many philosophers. For Hegel, for instance, thought was the "active universal" in contrast to a conception of thought as "subjective activity." Yet, I said: "as an outcome." For the experience that led Heidegger to be convinced of the non-subjective nature of thought was a completely different one. Heidegger also shared with others the view that what is thought, the "work," has a Being fully independent of the person of the thinker: In a work the truth of the issue itself comes forth. Thus it would run counter to Heidegger's basic convictions for us to memorialize him today in a biographical way. We must devote ourselves rather to his thought and his work.
