GOMEZ ALGARRA, César. Steadfastness and Da-sein. The Thinking of Ereignis and Transcendental Philosophy. arete [online]. 2022, vol.34, n.2, pp.344-366.  Epub Dec 22, 2022. ISSN 1016-913X.

This paper attempts to trace and identify Heidegger’s attacks against transcendental philosophy, as they appear in his posthumous texts of the 1930s and 1940s, that is, the so-called treatises on Ereignis, and in the last volumes of the Gesamtausgabe. I will focus especially on volume 82, published in 2018, which includes a series of Heidegger’s annotations and re-readings concerning his own published work -this volume has not drawn a lot of attention in recent research. This way of proceeding will allow to show the author’s own critiques of his treatise Being and Time, and why he questions it a posteriori as a work of transcendental philosophy. After presenting the critique against all transcendental philosophy and transcendental subjects, it will be possible to describe the other possibility found in these posthumous works: the idea of steadfastness or “standing within” (Inständigkeit) in Being. Finally I will point out some difficulties and limitations implicit within the will to overcome our modern philosophical tradition, as it is shown by the project of a history of Be-ing (Geschichte des Seyns) as another beginning (andere Anfang) of thinking.

Keywords : phenomenology; Ereignis; history of Be-ing; transcendence; Inständigkeit.
