Abstract

Heidegger interprets the Cave Analogy as an occurrence of the self-differentiation of unconcealment and concealment, which in one word is captured in ἀλήθεια. This reading is decisive for his path toward thinking being as such. The forgetting of concealment is the history of the first beginning, which is, therefore, a history of the loss of concealment. This loss ultimately reduces being to something present-at-hand. The other beginning, which Heidegger sees as necessary, considers and safeguards concealment. But how can one meaningfully think being in harmony with concealment?
