Greater Kashmir on housing issues.
We build houses but our forefathers built homes. What we miss in our dwellings is dwelling space/home as Heidegger pointed out. A dwelling, he argued, is characterized by sparing and preserving – preserving relates to the “fourfold.” – “one lives on earth, under the sky, before the divinities, and belonging to men’s being with one another.” Everything in its free sphere is preserved. Since instrumental rationality and technological culture rule, we have houses and not homes.
