Pain and Worldview Wars: a Heideggerian Analysis

The article presents the political aspect of Heideggerian thought and relates it to an analysis of the ontological meaning of pain. Modern political thought is considered to be a part of modern technological thought. Therefore, the fundamentals of modern politics are related to discussions on the destruction of metaphysics and the articulation of ontological difference. An articulation of ontological difference in Heidegger’s philosophy is the ontological analysis of pain. Pain is one of the names for the ontological difference. Its structure in the Heidegger’s late thought developed from a conception of spatiality as Befindlichkeit in Being and Time, which was` a Heideggerian development of Kant’s conception of productive imagination. Hence, the articulation of the new space of being invokes an analysis of ontological origins of both the great poesy and the fundamental words of philosophy


Key Words: Heidegger, ideology, ontology, pain, political philosophy, technology
