Abstract

This paper shows how by Heidegger and Kierkegaard the freedom arises from within the linkage on the light of being; in the coming-close to the light we become free. Our freedom at last lies in the relevant taking-over of the freedom of being, including our most proper possibility to exist. The thinker assumes the accountability for the mystery of being. The human being is by its very essence as corresponding to the being, in moderate releasement (Gelassenheit) he gives oneself to the truth of being. Only in this way can one disburden of modern-age metaphysical willing, and bring forth the truth in commensurability with the mystery of nature (letting-be).
