"He was to blame in wearing away his youth in contemplation with the end of poetizing
in his manhood.
In Heideggerian terms one might say that such a fourfold "requires us to consider its poetizing
form, which shows that the fourfold is continually disclosed differently for different cultures" (Rickert 2013, 236).
We all know the mood; and we can all, if we choose to relax to that extent, indulge in the luxury of reminiscence of childhood; but if we are at all mature and conscious, we refuse to indulge this weakness to the point of writing and poetizing
about it; we know that it is something to be buried and done with, though the corpse will from time to time find its way up to the surface.
'The little blue flower is red': Relics and the poetizing
of the body.
(93) Martin Heidegger, Introduction To Philosophy: Thinking & Poetizing
Within the context of the thinking and poetizing
genealogy of Nietzche, Heidegger, and Derrida, Levinasian critique transforms itself into a deconstructive reading, based upon the ethical demand and responsibility.
For what is thought in a "meditative" manner and spoken of "poetically" resists reification and objectification, and this view is mirrored in both Pinar's "expressionistic" and non-instrumental writing of the curriculum and Huebner's non-ritualistic and non-technical poetizing
of the processes of authentic education through language.
Other examples of the application of the conventions of earlier canonical poets is the presence of the term 'Tumi"; consider Canzone XXXVII of the Canzoniere, "m'ascondon que' duo lumi" or LIX "e T volger de' duo lumi honesti et belli" as only two of several poems by Petrarch, in which Luisa's poetizing
resembles that of Petrarch.
The second half of these lectures takes up the theme of poetizing
(Dichtung) as "the fundamental event of being as such." What this means, Heidegger insists, remains a "mystery"; that is, no amount of philosophical or philological commentary can explain or decode its singular, enigmatic power.
But in what sense are these terms more adequate for Being than, for example, Holderlin's poetizing
of Being in terms of rivers?
However, by thinking, or "poetizing
," in terms of Andenken, beginnings as origins we imagine what it was like "before there was metaphysics and also about how metaphysics can be overcome by an 'other inception' that retrieves what was only implicit in the first inception," namely, the "question of Being as such," which has been long forgotten (37).
His topics are the Kantian breakthrough, production and artistry in Schelling's philosophy of identity, imagination and ground in Schelling's Freiheitsschrift, Heidegger on Schelling's impulse and poetizing
impasse, and Heidegger's Holderlin and the aletheiac imagination.
