Taking Place

This chapter explores Heidegger’s influential theory of being, or Dasein, in relation to images of place. It argues that images, like places, offer us an imperfect but legitimate and necessary way of imagining and experiencing our imperfect belonging to and sharing of the world. Dasein is neither the subject nor mere body. Dasein refers to the spatiotemporally unique being that I am—to a being that comes to being by way of its discovery and use of what is at hand. For Heidegger, the clarity of Dasein—what is distinctive about Dasein, about the particular being that we are—also comes by way of being thrown and being-with-others. To be is to be thrown; it is to emerge in a world that is without essence and that is already happening before our arrival.

Keywords:   Heidegger, Dasein, place, images, being
