In NDPR, Michael Bowler reviews Jussi Backman's Complicated Presence: Heidegger and the Postmetaphysical Unity of Being.
The recognition of the failure of his early project allows Heidegger to see that what he hoped to achieve could only be accomplished if he gives up on approaching meaningful presence and its nonpresent background context ontically by means of the analysis of the exemplary being Dasein and its understanding of being. Rather, what is needed is an analysis of the event (Ereignis) of the ontological differentiation of being and beings (the ontological difference) as such or beyng, a term which in his late philosophy Heidegger will dispense with altogether by simply referring to Ereignis.
