Teleologia ed escatologia nei Beiträge zur Philosophie di Heidegger

Andrea Osti    Università degli Studi di Genova, Italia    



This paper examines Heidegger’s Beiträge zur Philosophie with the aim of shedding light on its messianic-eschatological approach. Firstly, I take into account the formal structure of history through a reference to Aristotle’s grasp of κίνησις and its principles. I then try to connect this structure to the complex epochal movement of Universal History, as it emerges from Heidegger’s works in the ‘30s. Lastly, I deal with the concept of the last-God’s realm in order to stress the messianic dimension of Heidegger’s projects for the new humankind known as the Futurians.

Keywords: Theory of History. Messianism. Eschatology. Heidegger. Kinesis. Aristotle.
