Groundwork with the Grundfragen.
Our crisis is the lack of a single crisis in our Dasein. Instead of attending to our Being-there and our fundamental absence, we are smugly content in our grounds. As I read it, this point reached by Heidegger opens out into contemporary philosophy’s investigation into the processes of subjectivation. What are the forces, both immanent and external to the subject, that shape it in the grounds of its being? How are we – all of us, in different ways – constituted, prior to our thoughts, our desires, our political engagements; and how can our attunement to this constitution effect an engagement with the manifold crises in which, in every case, we are to some extent complicit?
