Nearness of Distances

Nearness of Distances

Teacher: We say that we look into the horizon. Therefore the field of vision is something open, but its openness is not due to our looking.

Scholar: Likewise we do not place the appearance of objects, which the view within a field of vision offers us, into this openness…

Scientist: … rather that comes out of this to meet us…

Scientist: Then thinking would be coming-into-the-nearness of distance.

Martin Heidegger | Discourse on Thinking


The present is capacious, coincident with the spaciousness of rhetorics.
