In NDPR Duane Armitage reviews Antonio Cimino's Enactment, Politics, and Truth: Pauline Themes in Agamben, Badiou, and Heidegger.
Drawing from Derrida's remarks on Heidegger's existential analytic, a central focus in it concerns an overlooked term in Heidegger's philosophy, namely, attestation (Bezeugung), and how such attestation seems to converge and link to Heidegger's earlier use of Pauline pistis. Cimino's text is quite insightful in this regard, as he applies his hypothesis to and throughout some of the more difficult sections of Heidegger's Sein und Zeit. Again, he makes a powerful case for Heidegger's concept of attestation or "bearing witness" -- to authentic existential possibilities -- being fundamentally overlooked by previous Heidegger scholarship, particularly in its crucial role as a proper manifestation of conscience, and, perhaps most importantly, as a suitable phenomenological ground opposed to Cartesian-Husserlian foundationalism.
