Chapter Three presents Heidegger’s imperatives of transformational thinking and fundamental ontology. It begins with an elucidation of Heidegger’s diagnosis of the state of modernity as technological thinking, showing that the way out of this particular mode of thought is through the essence of technology itself, characterized as a “bringing forth” that technology shares with art. Having established the precedent for a reflection on art, the chapter proceeds to explain how art accomplishes the necessary transformation in awareness. Then the connection between Being and logos is elaborated, along with the crucial position of Hölderlin, who opens a clearing for the happening of Truth. The last section explains how these elements come together to form the structure for Heidegger’s conception of a people. The chapter ends with an imaginative comparison of Heidegger and Deleuze through the work of Paul Klee.

Keywords:   Heidegger, art, saving power, Ge-stell, Hölderlin, Klee, origin, aletheia, poiesis, Volk, National Socialism
