Heidegger: πάθος as the Thing Itself
Heidegger’s phenomenological readings of Aristotle on πάσχειν and πάθος revolutionized the phenomenology of affect, and he carried that revolution into his later work on πάθος, Lichtung, and Ereignis. This chapter argues that πάθος, read as Dasein’s thrownness or appropriation, is die Sache selbst of Heidegger’s thought.
