Chapter Five develops the Heideggerian relationship between earth, art, and a people in both political and ontological terms. The first section delineates the multiple significances of earth, revealing that the exercise of gathering multiple significances together emerges as the hallmark of thinking, essential for the emergence of a historical, philosophic people-to-come. The chapter explores what it means to become thoroughly unheimlich, as wanderers through what is strange so as to return to what is “ownmost,” examining Heidegger’s claim that becoming a “people” requires true historicity. The penultimate section links art and earth from Origin of the Work of Art to his later emphasis on Ereignis in anticipation of Deleuze’s crucial emphasis on thinking as event. The final section turns to Heidegger’s emphasis on Hölderlin and poeticizing as the place of the Ereignis of a people-to-come.

Keywords:   Heidegger, Heimat, unheimlich, Ereignis, people-to-come, Hölderlin, rootedness, polis, spirit, Rimbaud
