Performativität und Heideggers Hermeneutik der Faktizität


Performativity and Heidegger’s Hermeneutics of Facticity

For a compatibility of Heideggers Contributions with today's questions of meaning and performative processes of self-interpretation, Rüdiger Rimpler recently suggested to draw on studies from the field of performativity research. From the viewpoint of a phenomenology of temporality and performance (living out) a promising opening of Heidegger's work appears, which transcends Heidegger in line with him as well as against him to be preserved for the present age. It is shown in this article, in retrospect from the perspective of performativity research, that with „hermeneutics of facticity“ Heidegger laid the fundament for an ontologically construed performativity already before his „Contributions“. Therefore, in contrast to Rimpler's view, Heidegger's work has the potential to be preserved for the present age much more with than against him. Performativity research hardly referred to Heidegger so far but can enormously benefit from Heidegger's foundation. In addition, this article is intended to contribute to a necessary differentiation of the concept of performativity.
