It's particularly useful, I think -- given the stress that Heidegger is placing on truth as aletheia, "unconcealing," as what fundamentally occurs in the artwork -- to also review his essay "On The Essence of Truth" (video lecture available here).
There are a number of questions and issues still left open, in need of exploration, with respect to the themes of this essay -- not least among which is how it has to do with Existentialism. I'll be delving into those in the coming weeks and months in several different forums -- this blog, of course, but also in entries on my main and oldest blog, Orexis Dianoētikē. And, I'll be discussing how all of this theory might apply to actual works of art on my newest blog, The Heavy Metal Philosopher.
