Abstract

[Extract] The Greeks were the fIrst historical people. At least Heidegger thought so. They were the fIrst to create themselves in time, the first to break the rule of the habitual, the first to be original. The title of Heidegger's 1935 lecture on "The Origin of the Work of Art" sums up in three words-origin, work and art-the emergence of an historical people. The "work" of the work of art is to open up a world. The "origin" of the work of art is the beginning, the advent in time, of such a world. This emergence in time is historical. "Art's" work is to create a world historical people.
