have the clearing in view, except that here truth always walked behind. The dark is, to be sure, without light, but cleared. Our concern is to experience unconcealment as clearing. That is what is unthought in what is thought in the whole history of thought. In Hegel, the need consisted in the satisfaction of thought. For us, on the contrary, the plight of what is unthought in what is thought reigns.

FINK: Professor Heidegger has already officially ended our seminar with his words. I believe I can also speak on behalf of all the participants when I thank Professor Heidegger in warmth and admiration. The work of thought can be like a towering mountain range in stark outline, like "the safely built Alps." But we have here experienced something of the flowing magma which, as a subterranean force, raises up the mountains of thought.

HEIDEGGER: At the close, I would like the Greeks to be honored, and I return to the seven sages. From Periander of Corinth we have the sentence he spoke in a premonition: μελέτα τό πάν. "In care, take the whole as whole." Another word that also comes from him is this: φύσεως καταγορία. "Ηinting at, making nature visible."
