Historographical reconstruction of implicit mediations between philosophical projects of Heidegger and Adorno
Keywords:philosophical historiography, mediation, discourse, reconstruction, metaphysics, ontology
Heidegger and Adorno are thinkers one can hardly imagine compatible. Nevertheless, it took the world philosophical community less than fifty years to produce a whole corpus of texts dealing with Adorno-Heidegger dispute. Although no evidence ever suggested that such a dispute really took place, Adorno's violent critique of Heidegger's jargon draws attention of both devoted Heideggerians and their not less devoted opponents and generates the real dispute over Adorno-Heidegger dispute. Unfortunately, Ukrainian scholars are of little concern about such secondary phenomena of the world philosophical process as reception history or reconstruction of the divides and bridges between leading figures in philosophy of the twentieth century.The common ground for Heidegger and Adorno can be seen only through the lens of the deeper divide between analytical and continental traditions in philosophy. Post-Soviet condition of philosophizing can be changed if it finds itself within this continental coordinates as opposed to positivist ideology of science. This is where the implicit common core for contemporary Ukrainian postmarxism, Adorno's critical theory and Heidegger's fundamental ontology can be found. In this article I argue for historiographical turn in contemporary Ukrainian history of philosophy, which would enable overcoming of topical approaches in favor of influence approaches.
