Zoogenesis on Aristotle’s multiplicity and Heidegger’s directive.
According to Heidegger’s reading, “the various kinds” of generation are for Aristotle only two, that of technical objects and that of living beings (φύσις), of which only the latter “place themselves forth” and are thus “intrinsically twofold” insofar as they constitute “the presencing of an absencing.” However, according to Aristotle there in fact exist “multiple branches of Being,” of which φύσις is only “a particular (and in itself limited) region of beings.”
I need footnotes to the two citations from Aristotle in the quotation marks. I cannot argue Aristotle with this author, and I admire his chutzpah for arguing Aristotle with MH.
