Representation and Poiesis: The Imagination in the Later Heidegger

Philosophy Today 51 (3):261-277 (2007)
Abstract
I examine the role of the imagination (Einbildung) for Martin Heidegger after his Kant-reading of 1929. In 1929 he broadens the imagination to the openness of Dasein. But after 1930 Heidegger either disparages it as a representational faculty belonging to modernity; or further develops and clarifies its ontological broadening as the clearing or poiesis. If the hylo-morphic duality implied by Kantian imagination requires a prior unity, that underlying power unfolding beings in aletheic formations (poiesis) of being (the happening of being, the opening of the world) would have to ultimately be in excess to any spontaneous power of subjectivity.
