Martin Heidegger (philosopher)

Digital, 2012

“Why does it play, the great child of the world-play Heraclitus brought into view in the aiôn? It plays, because it plays. The ‘because’ withers away in the play. The play is without ‘why.’ … It simply remains a play: the most elevated and the most profound. But this ‘simply’ is everything, the one, the only… The question remains whether and how we, hearing the movements of this play, play along and accommodate ourselves to the play.”

Martin Heidegger (philosopher)
