Du monde au milieu. Heidegger et Watsuji

Abstract : This paper examines three paths that can be followed in elaborating the question of the world : 1) The historiographic path followed by Heidegger in his 1929 essay On the Essence of Ground, compared with that of Watsuji in the last chapter of his Fûdo, where he analyses the concept of « climate and culture ». 2) The historiographic path followed by Watsuji in the Introduction of his Ethics for the concept of « world » (seken). 3) The comparative path followed by Heidegger in his 1929-30 lecture course The Fundamental concepts of Metaphysics, where he developed the philosophical problem of « transposition » (Ersetzung), the analysis of which will allow us to clarify several issues raised by Watsuji’s book.
