Place and Locality in Heidegger's Late Thought

A strand of contemporary philosophy has turned from the traditional focus on universality toward conceptions of “one’s own,” “place,” and “particularity.” In the recovery of “place” and “Iocation,” no attempt has been made to distinguish betwen these terms nor to investigate their different implications even though there is an incipient distinction between them in Heidegger’s late work. This meditation on the relationship between place (Ort) and locality (Ortschaft) begins from Heidegger’s texts in which the distinction was made. The second part follows the thought of location further. Third, the implication of this distinctionfor the task of thinking and its distinction from poetry is explored. In conclusion, some implicationsfor the interpretation and application of Heidegger’s work and for the place that a definition and defence of particularity and locality might have in contemporary philosophy are explored.Une certaine voie de la philosophie contemporaine a déplacé son attention traditionnelle portée à I’universeI pour se tourner vers des conceptions du “propre,” du “lieu,” du “particulier.” Dans la récupération des concepts de “lieu” et d’ “emplacement,” on n’a pas, jusqu’ ici, tenté de distinguer ces terms ou d'etudier leurs implications respectives, bien qu 'une distinction emerge dans I’oeuvre tardive de Heidegger. La présente méditation sur la relation entre lieu (Ort) et localité (Ortschaft) part du texte heideggérien dans lequel la distinction a été faite. Le seconde partie poursuit la pensée de la localité. La troisième sonde la portée de cette distinction pour la tâche de la pensée et la façon dont elle se démarque de la poésie. En conclusion, j’explore I’incidence qu ’une definition et une défense de la particularité et de la localité pourrait avoir sur I’interpretation et I’application de I’oeuvre de Heidegger en philosophie contemporaine
