Call for Papers - Vol. 12, No. 2 (2023)


Ekstasis: Journal of Hermeneutics and Phenomenology announces the call for papers to select unpublished articles, reviews, and translations for the next issue.


Deadline for submissions September 30th, 2023

It is possible to say that, since his first writings in the 1920s, Heidegger does not intend to offer a philosophy that takes up metaphysical principles prior to the critical cut made by Kant, that is, Heidegger seems to consider the need to carry out philosophical inquiry at the limits of possible experience. The decisive issue, in this sense, would be to recover a notion of experience that would be original, which, in effect, he intends to develop with his phenomenological analysis of hermeneutically situated experience. One must keep in mind, nevertheless, that in Heideggerian thought the “philosophical investigation at the limits of possible experience” is developed in and by the re-dimensioning of the question of being, which can be considered as an “ontological turn” in relation to critical philosophy. Not without reason, on the horizon of the question for the meaning of being (§7 of Being and Time), Heidegger claims that the a priori conditions of apprehension of phenomena introduced by Kant must be susceptible of conversion into phenomenon; in other words, that which is hidden and constitutes what appears (especially the being of the Being in its temporal sense) may and must be methodologically converted into phenomenon. Given such considerations, the present dossier "Heidegger: Origins" invites researchers to contribute to the discussion about the origins of this "ontological turn" of critical philosophy carried out by Heidegger. The aim is to recognize, in the origins of Heideggerian thought, the continuities and ruptures in relation to the critical philosophical tradition.

Appropriate topics for submission: 

1) dialogues between Heidegger and Kantian philosophy;

2) Heidegger and German Idealism; 

3) Neokantian philosophy and Heideggerian Thought;
