Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


In its joyful or hurtful, but always shattering and critical effraction, the event is what shapes our world and decides our adventure. But do we even know what an "event" is? Are we capable of thinking about it in terms of its own phenomenal determinations? Familiar to all of us, the event is philosophically obscure: centered entirely on the question of being, Western thought, from Aristotle to Heidegger (with the exception, no doubt, of the Stoics and Nietzsche), has only been able to assign it a derivative status, often indeterminate, and as if on the bangs of its guiding concepts. Through a phenomenological interpretation of the human being in the light of these kernels of meaning where his destiny is played out, this work endeavours both to think through the properly event-driven dimension of the human adventure and to understand the occultation of the event with which this ontological tradition is bound up.
