Though I was happy to have a grounding in German Heideggarian- tending thought in college, I don't think I ever really understood the central notion of Sorge (often translated as "care") until I saw Franco Volpi's article in this collection quite a few years later in a bookstore. Volpi says that what makes possible his reflections was the publication of Heidegger's University Lectures. I am not sure how that jibes in terms of time when I was in school, but I can say I wasn't aware of some of what is made clear by Volpi. And I consider these matters truly "critical" in all senses, including that of "making a difference" in everyday life. To wit, Volpi's connection of what might easily be seen, and has been, as a sort of general mystical element in Heidegger, with more telos guided thought, coming hisorically from Aristotle of course. On the opposite had, don't forget that in some way or other (Heidegger was wont to be none to clear on this) the very core concept of Dasein was influenced by Japanese thought. And yet, and yet. What Volpi makes clear is that the Aristotelian basis of it all grounded this mysticism in a very Western notion, which I would interpret as, to coin a phrase, a penchant for telos. What is really brilliant is how Volpi connects this more amorphous sense with the very intrinsic notion Sorge or Care. For as Volpi trenchantly summarizes "[Heidegger] interprets Sorge not as a determinate comportment of Dasein, whether theoretical [or] practical, but as a unitary ontological foundation which renders possible all the different comportments." p. 55-56. Wow that is such a perfect insight. When I first read Sein und Zeit it was easy to conceive of Dasein as a quasi-mystical or philosophical something or beingness that had qualities or "comportments'.Read more ›
