The Eyeless Owl on moments of truth.
Heidegger’s notion of truth as aletheia (un-forgetfulness or un-concealment) is strikingly similar to the notion of truth that happens in moments of creative activities as described by Briggs and Peat. For the Greeks, truth as aletheia was a foundational, primordial instance of disclosure that made possible in the first instance any and all formal notions of truth (e.g., the correspondence model of truth – truth as the agreement between subject and object). It is the moment when things show themselves in their original modes of self-showing.
