    Historicity and the Hermeneutic Predicament: From Yorck to Derrida2018In: The Oxford Handbook of the History of Phenomenology / [ed] Dan Zahavi, Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2018, p. 717-733Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The chapter presents the topic of “historicity” (Geschichtlichkeit) as a core concern for phenomenological thinking in the intersection with hermeneutics. It is first coined as a philosophical term by Dilthey and Yorck von Wartenburg as a way to capture the unique way in which humans exist historically and belong to history. Through their correspondence published posthumously in 1923 it enters the orbit of Heidegger’s existential phenomenology, as he quotes extensively from these letters in Being in Time. For Heidegger, historicity was the key to transforming Husserlian phenomenology into hermeneutical ontology. In his reappraisal of hermeneutic thinking, Gadamer also locates historicity at the center of his magnum opus Truth and Method. The chapter also shows how Husserl was a thinker of historicity. This is brought out in particular in Derrida’s early interpretations of Husserl, where the deconstructive approach emerges literally from the problem of the historicity of ideal objects.

    Abstract [en]

    At the outset of the section on ‘Spirit’ in The Phenomenology of Spirit (1977) Hegel describes how the human spirit over the course of its gradual externalization and realization falls apart into two separate ethical substances, as human law and divine law respectively (§445). Human law is the reflection of the creation of a universality embodied in the state, whereas divine law is connected to an experience of individuality as concretely manifested in the family. In the moral order of the state, the individual recognizes itself as a universal being under universal obligations, whereas the system of the family binds it to an inner, or as Hegel writes, ‘unconscious’ ethical order.

    Abstract [en]

    This chapter explores the relation between Heidegger, Rudolf Bultmann and Hans Jonas, through the figure of Paul. Bultmann was Heidegger’s friend and colleague from Marburg who used an existential ontology to reinvent Lutheran theology. Hans Jonas was a student of both of them, who left Germany for USA in 1933. For Heidegger, Paul was a voice of original facticity and historicity, but also a source for his choice of National Socialism and anti-Judaism. For Bultmann, Paul and Christianity served as a defence against totalitarian temptations. Jonas’s return to Paul in his later years is both a response to Heidegger’s betrayal and a celebration of his original interpretation in a reinvention of Paul as a Jewish existential thinker. © The Author(s) 2017.

    Kommentar till Heideggers Varat och tiden2005 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Heideggers huvudverk Varat och tiden (Sein und Zeit) från 1927 är en av nittonhundratalsfilosofins mest centrala filosofiska texter. Genom sin radikala ansats att på nytt ställa den antika frågan om varats mening utifrån en samtida och aktuell horisont har den förändrat det filosofiska landskapet. I denna kommenterande text ges en ingång till verket, som följer dess egen rörelse kapitel för kapitel. Heideggers nydanande terminologi diskuteras och sätts in i sitt sammanhang, bokens struktur genomlyses och dess anspråk prövas.

    Abstract [de]

    Die philosophische Begegnung zwischen Leibniz und Martin Heidegger--von Heidegger während seines Denkwegs in verschiedenen Formen inszeniert--hat für die Definition der Philosophie und des philosophischen Denkens eine ausgezeichnete Bedeutung. Der bekannte Vorwurf Heideggers an Leibniz, Begründer einer kalkulierenden Vernunft zu sein, die die Moderne eingefangen hat, steht gegen den nicht weniger verbreiteten Verdacht, Heidegger selbst sei wiederum doch des Verrats am Ethos philosophischer Vernunft zu tadeln.

    Origin in Exile: Heidegger and Benjamin on Language, Truth, and Translation1999In: Research in Phenomenology, ISSN 0085-5553, E-ISSN 1569-1640, Vol. 29, p. 141-160Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The text develops a comparison between the philosophies of language of Heidegger and Walter Benjamin. The key question concerns the relation between language and reason, the two sides of logos. As a common link the romantic conception of language of J.G. Hamann is explored, the implicit and explicit repercussions of which can be traced in both Benjamin and Heidegger. In several respects Benjamin's early essays on language and translation anticipates Heidegger's later work, while Heidegger's more elaborated theory illucidates Benjamin's intentions.

    Sacrificial Subjectivity: Faith and Interiorization of Cultic Practice in the Pauline Letters2016In: Philosophy and the end of sacrifice: disengaging ritual in ancient India, Greece and beyond / [ed] Peter Jackson, Anna-Pya Sjödin, Sheffield, UK: Equinox Publishing, 2016, p. 197-218Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Against the backdrop of anti-pagan Christian imperial policies during the 4th century, Hans Ruin draws attention to the core of the Christian canon: the letters of Paul. While taking its lead from Stroumsa’s overall interpretative scheme concerning the transformation and internalization of sacrifice during and after the time of Christ, as essentially a transformation within Jewish culture itself, the analysis differs when it comes to the specific role and meaning of the Pauline letters. These canonical documents for Christianity, notably Romans, Hebrews, and First Corinthians, are interpreted as decisive expressions of precisely this inner critical transformation of Jewish spiritual culture in the direction of an internalized sacrifice. They also became the cornerstone for the emergence of a new “sacrificial subjectivity.” The analysis critically engages with Hegel’s understanding of Christianity, and also revokes Foucualt’s and Hadot’s work on the ancient culture of care for the self. Finally it acknowledges the work of Derrida, thus building a bridge to the last section of the book.

    Seeing Meaning: Frege and Derrida on Ideality and the Limits of Husserlian Intuitionism2011In: Husserl Studies, ISSN 0167-9848, E-ISSN 1572-8501, Vol. 27, no 1, p. 63-81Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article seeks to challenge the standard accounts of how to view the difference between Husserl and Frege on the nature of ideal objects and meanings. It does so partly by using Derrida's deconstructive reading of Husserl to open up a critical space where the two approaches can be confronted in a new way. Frege's criticism of Husserl's philosophy of mathematics (that it was essentially psychologistic) was partly overcome by the program of transcendental phenomenology. But the original challenge to the prospect of a fulfilled intuition of idealities remained and was in fact encountered again from within the transcendental analysis by Husserl himself in his last writings on geometry and language. According to the two standard and conflicting accounts, Husserl either changed his earlier psychologistic program as a result of Frege's criticism, or he was in fact never challenged by it in the first place. The article shows instead how Husserl continued to struggle with the problem of the constitution of ideal objects, and how his quest led him to a point where his analyses anticipate a more dialectical and deconstructive conclusion, eventually made explicit by Derrida. It also shows not only how this development constitutes a philosophical continuity from the original dispute with Frege, but also how Frege's critique in a certain respect could be read as an anticipation of Derrida's deconstructive elaboration of Husserl's phenomenology.

    Technology as destiny in Cassirer and Heidegger: Continuing the Davos Debate2012In: Ernst Cassirer on Form and Technology: Contemporary Readings / [ed] Aud Sissel Hoel & Ingvild Folkvord, London: Palgrave Macmillan, 2012, p. 113-138Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years the legendary encounter and debate between Ernst Cassirer and Martin Heidegger in Davos in April 1929 has received a renewed interest, notably through the work of Michael Friedman, and also Peter Gordon.1 It is then interpreted as a decisive event in twentieth-century philosophy, as an event both antedating and anticipating the sharp divides between different schools of thought that eventually came to characterize the philosophical landscape. At the time of the debate there was no clear and definitive division between an analytic-linguistic and a phenomenological philosophy, nor between a philosophy of culture in Cassirer’s sense and an existential ontology. Nor had the political landscape taken on the disastrous shape that was to project many of the colleagues and discussants forever into different orbits, geographically and politically. In 1931 Rudolf Carnap - who was among the participants at the Davos meeting - published his sharp criticism of the inaugural address that Heidegger had delivered when taking over the Rickert-Husserl chair in Freiburg in 1928, thus establishing the fateful antagonism between logical positivism and existential phenomenology.2 And from 1933 the political turmoil and Heidegger’s initial support for the new regime, which included assuming for a time the rectorate in Freiburg, would forever colour the public image of his philosophy, and his relation to many Jewish colleagues.

    The claim of the past?: historical consciousness as memory, haunting, and responsibility in Nietzsche and beyond2019In: Journal of Curriculum Studies, ISSN 0022-0272, E-ISSN 1366-5839, Vol. 51, no 6, p. 798-813Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article provides a new interpretation of the most widely cited essay on historical consciousness, Friedrich Nietzsche?s ?On the use and abuse of history for life? from 1874, reconnecting it to current debates in educational science and the role of the historian and educator in a post-colonial situation. It reminds us how historical consciousness is an always contested and critical space, where our existential commitment to justice is also tested. The interpretation moves beyond the standard understanding of Nietzsche as only favouring a life-affirming use of history. It displays how his argument opens the door toward understanding historical consciousness as a transcultural ethical space of an encounter between the dead and the living. It addresses the contemporary debate in education science concerning the relation and preference between a broader and more limited notion of historical consciousness, questioning the possibility of a conclusive theory of historical consciousness for practical-pedagogical purposes. It exemplifies its conclusions in regard to the legacies of the Holocaust and to Apartheid, as also pedagogical challenges.

    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".

    The Inversion of Mysticism: Gelassenheit and the Secret of the Open in Heidegger2018In: Religions, ISSN 2077-1444, E-ISSN 2077-1444, Vol. 10, no 1, article id 15Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract: The article explores the topic of Gelassenheit (releasement) in Heidegger, through the lense of the ambiguous role of Christian mysticism in general and Eckhart in particular in and for his thinking. In an analysis of how mysticism appears in his early lectures on religion, it explains why he is critical of this concept and of how it is commonly understood. It also gives reasons for why we too should be cautious in using it to describe his position in his later writings where he explicitly reconnects to themes and concepts from Eckhart. The text provides a critical rehearsal of Eckhart's understanding of both “Abgeschiedenheit” (detachment) and "Gelassenheit" and how Heidegger relates to it both in his early lectures and in his later essays. Ultimately it outlines a phenomenological understanding of what is commonly referred to as a “mystical” comportment more along the lines of a heightened openness and awareness, in Heidegger’s words as a “releasement toward things and an openness to the secret”. Thus, instead of seeing Heidegger’s later writings as a sort of crypto-mysticism, the text seeks to show how his critical appropriation of Eckhart explicitly points beyond a standard dichotomy between the rational and the mystical, in an effort to develop a comportment of thinking than can respond to the demand of modern technological predicament.

    The Moment of Truth: Augenblick and Ereignis in Heidegger1998In: Epoche: A Journal for the History of Philosophy, ISSN 1085-1968, Vol. 6, no 1, p. 75-88Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The text explores the meaning and interrelatedness of two central notions in Heidegger's Augenblick and Ereignis. The former is associated not only with the analysis of temporality in Sein und Zeit, but also to the ideal of the kairological critique, as this is articulated in the earliest writings. The text tries to show how the central notion of Ereignis in the later writings evolves as a reworking of these previous themes.
