The Destiny of Freedom: in Heidegger

2008 (English)In: Continental philosophy review, ISSN 1387-2842, E-ISSN 1573-1103, Vol. 41, no 3, 277-299 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The essay recapitulates the decisive steps in Heidegger's development of the problem of human freedom. According to some readers, Heidegger's thinking is a philosophy of freedom throughout; according to others his "turning" implies abandoning the idea of human freedom as a metaphysical remnant. The essay seeks an intermediate path, by following his explicit attempts to develop an ontology based on the concept of freedom in the earlier writings, showing how this is the central theme in his confrontation and also his final break with German idealism, with Kant and with Schelling in particular, and with the prospects for a system of freedom. However, this break does not terminate his preoccupation with the problem of freedom, which is then transformed into the idea of thinking as a practice of freedom, as a way of reaching into "the free".
