VI. The event [183–184]

The appropriating event is consigning incursion, such that it eventuates, in appropriating and clearing, amid (beings) as the in-between for their truth.


193. Event—experience


We must learn to experience the event as the appropriating event; and we must first become mature enough for experience. Experience is never the bare sensory perception of objectively present things and facts. Experience is the pain of the departure; it is belongingness to what is not yet past—steadfastness in the inceptuality.

The appropriating event is essentially inceptual; what is not yet past, what goes down into the beginning. The beginning is older than everything established by historiology. The event can never, in the manner of an idea, be established and represented.

Beyng is not a representation and never a concept, not something thought in distinction to “beings.” Being is being, and being is; it is the beings.

Cf. Die Geschichte des Seyns I. Continuation. Typescript p. 1.2 Beings in their advent and passing away.


Literal meaning

194. To show—to eventuate


To show [Er-eigen]: to bring into view [Er-eugen], —to catch sight of [Eräugen] —ostendere, monstrare, to catch the eye, come into view, seize the gaze, to appear
to manifest itself, carry to, give forth.

—to show      —exhibit—clear up.

To eventuate (same as the above) eu [i.e., ereugen] became ei [i.e., ereigen]—

and also confusion with the unrelated “own” [“eigen”], proprium,
i.e., with “adopt” [“an-eignen”], “arrogate” [“zu-eignen”]

Already thus at the start of the seventeenth century.
