Example text

A critique of this inauthenticity, it could be said, is one prevalent orientation of Heidegger’s thought from early on, from Being and Time’s description of Dasein as ecstatic being-in-the-world to his later thought of man as essentially in a relation of cor-respondence to the address of being. Heidegger attempts to intimate an a-tunement more fundamental (originary) than that of the inauthentic (dis)attunement of the will as ecstatic-incorporation. This authentic fundamental attunement would involve a way of being that is fundamentally a-tuned to the otherness of being and to the being of others, and not an attunement that is “fundamental” in the sense of willfully positing its own ground and imposing the tune of this ground on others.

18 HEIDEGGER AND THE WILL The Domain of the Will: Willing, Not-Willing, Deferred-Willing, and Covert-Willing The “domain of the will” includes, to begin with, the polar extremes of a straightforward assertive willing on the one hand, and the simple negation or lack of willing on the other. ” Not-willing is understood to be the simple opposite of assertion of will, passivity as opposed to activity, and is to be rigorously distinguished from what is being called non-willing. Perhaps the initial and one of the most persistent difficulties in the attempt to think non-willing is distinguishing it from this mere passivity of not-willing.

Covert-Willing: The form of willing which conceals itself (perhaps even from itself) under the guise of not-willing or deferred-willing; in other words, the feigning of the negation or deferral of one’s will for the sake of preserving and increasing its power. The Domain of the Will: The entire range of possible modes of willing, including not only the straightforward assertion of will, but also notwilling, deferred-willing, and covert-willing. Note that “the problem of 23 THE WILL, NON-WILLING, AND THE DOMAIN OF THE WILL the will” needs to be fully understood as the problem of this entire domain of the will.
