Yet what does ποιεῖν suggest? in line with the dictionary, it actually capability “making” [machen]. yet what's making, quite notion as ποιεῖν, i. e. , understood in a Greek means? Do the Greeks ponder “creating” within the experience of the artistic manufacturer, within the experience of the employee, or within the feel of the solidarity of either meanings? by no means. What then do ποιεῖν and ποίησις suggest? we expect ποιεῖν in a Greek means after we imagine it—precisely as what's the following referred to as the human comportment of Greek humanity towards beings—such that we thereby take the Greek adventure of being because the foundation, and never simply any obscure and unexamined suggestion of what's actual during which we moderns, uncultivated in considering and sufficiently careworn, were stated. Beings, proposal in a Greek approach, are what are current and stand right here as such within the unconcealed. Ποιεῖν is the “bringing-forth” [«hervor-bringen»] of anything to presence into the unconcealed. we need to take our German note hervor-bringen thoroughly actually at this aspect: “here” [»her«]—from out of the heretofore hid; and “forth” [»vor«]—into the unconcealed, the open, which the human has ahead of and round itself; and “bringing”—which capability receiving anything, administering, and giving.

That that is introduced forth within the bringing-forth [Hervor-bringen] isn't anything new yet is quite the ever extra old of the traditional [das Ältere des Alten]. but at any time when bringing-forth is simply purpose on what's regularly new, it abandons its personal essence as ποίησις. Bringing-forth becomes the rebellious-­ autocratic motion of the humanity of subjectivity that enjoys its existence and hence attests to itself earlier than itself.
