What E-Vokes Thought?

(p.595) Chapter XIX What E-Vokes Thought?

William J. Richardson

Fordham University Press

This chapter examines Heidegger's first post-war lecture course of “What E-vokes Thought?”. Stretched over two semesters, the theme is developed in two different ways. In the winter semester, Heidegger's purpose was to approach the problem in terms of the philosophical tradition. With Nietzsche as his dialogue partner in learning, it is here that the author elaborates the Zarathustra analysis as signifying the correlation between Being and man. In the summer semester, he devotes himself to an exposition of his own composition of thought, developed through dialogue with the pre-Socratics. This chapter argues that it is Being that e-vokes thought as it is the process by which all beings emerge into presence. In order for the process to take place, there is a need for a There among beings. This want of a There is already an e-vocation of thought conceived as a fundamental structure.

Keywords:   winter semester, summer semester, Zarathustra, Nietzsche, pre-Socratics, e-voking
