Example text

As object [Gegenstand] of human representation, nature is set-toward human representation and is in this sense produced. Thought in this manner, producing is the basic trait of the objectification of nature. This producing does not first make nature in the sense of a manufacturing or creating. Producing sets to work a way in which nature turns itself toward [sich zuwendet] the human, and within this turning [Wendung] becomes deployable [verwendbar]. This producing turns, from the outset, everything natural into something objective for mathematical representation.

S chol a r : “The human is annihilated” says then: the essence of the human is annihilated. We must think back to the essence of the human. G u i de : Indeed. S ci en t ist : You philosophers always think backwards. This is surely the basis for the often noted impression that philosophy and its history leave on every straight-thinking mind: that philosophy, in 14 Country Path Conversations [21–23] contrast to the progress of scientific research [Forschung], stays in the same place and never gets anywhere.

G u i de : That is entirely right. S chol a r : But I still don’t know whether there is something like this. ” S ci en t ist : The selfsame, and what the selfsame is, is what is purely and simply undoubtable.
