Making Room: Heidegger’s Concept of Einräumung
The study deals with a little-known concept in Heidegger’s thought, that of Einräumung, a term that can be translated as ‘making space’. In the first section, a quick review is given of the relations between time, space, and existence in Being and Time, Heidegger’s main work. The second section provides an introductory discussion of the concept of Einräumung from the stratification of its meanings. Finally, in the third section, these meanings are transposed into the dimension of Heidegger’s thought, showing how Einräumung calls into question a much more complex structure, in which a place is arranged so that it in turn arranges hospitality.
