Heidegger in the Bedroom

Me: I don’t really get this at all. (handing book to girlfriend)

She: (begins reading aloud)

The essence of technology lies in enframing. Its holding sway begins with destining. Since destining at any given time starts man on the way to revealing, man, thus underway, is continually approaching the possibility of pursuing and pushing forward nothing but what is revealed in ordering, and of deriving all his standards on this basis.

She: What’s destining?

Me: I don’t know.

She: Oh, so he made it up. (continues reading)

Through this the other possibility is blocked, that man might be admitted more and sooner and ever more primally to the essence of what is unconcealed and to its unconcealment, in order that he might experience as his essence the requisite belonging to revealing.

Now is the time on Sprockets when we dance.

Me: I don’t remember that last part.

  1. Do you REALIZE how lucky you are to have a girlfriend with a sense of humor.
    Heidegger in BED? OMG.
    On the other hand, it will put you to sleep. 😀

  2. Hey, I didn’t write about the fact that she was handing me Derrida in the bedroom and asking me to explain it the week before.
