PLATONE A COLMAR
UNA LETTURA GNOSTICA DE L’ESSENZA DELLA VERITÀ DI HEIDEGGER
Alberto Giovanni Biuso
The gnostic fundament of Martin Heidegger’s thought not only comes out of Geworfenheit which is treated in Sein und Zeit, but also out of all from the most important concepts of his philosophy: from the truth as ἀλήθεια to the ontological difference. One of the texts which better expresses such a root is the university course Heidegger dedicated to Plato in the winter semester 1931/32. Theaetetus and The Republic analysis, the ascent to the sun of knowledge consists of an ontological way from the darkness to the light. The paper attempts to pick up and argue the gnostic dimension spreading throughout this course, even if paying attention to the development of the Heidegger’s philosophy in its entirety. A peculiar figurative example of such a dimension is The Isenheim Altarpiece of Matthias Grünewald.
