(p.74) Face of Nature, Gift of Creation

Bruce Foltz

Fordham University Press

Bruce Foltz points out the inadequacy of works like “environment” and “nature” for capturing what Hölderlin calls elsewhere “the wonderfully all-present.” “Nature” and “environment” are shallow and inadequate words that immediately entangle us in problematic dualisms and scientific presuppositions. Heidegger suggested that physis is a more appropriate Leitword (key word), one that facilitates the reenchantment of the world and, indeed, an awakening of the holy.

Keywords:   Holderin, Physis, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Ktisis, Creatio, Materiality, Christianity
