Is It The End Of Philosophy Or A New Step? An Evaluation Regardıng Badiou's Critıcism Of Heidegger

Although Hegel is the pioneer of "the end of philosophy", it has been defended by different basics of analytical tradition, hermeneutics tradition and postmodern orientation in contemporary philosophy. In order to question the claims of the closure of an entire entity and the history of thought extending to Plato, this study focuses on the late thought of Martin Heidegger, one of the most powerful representatives of the closure claim. The most general lines; Heidegger's "end of philosophy" theme is worldwide sovereignty of the technique putting an end to philosophy and the exhaustion of the possibilities of metaphysics being irreversibly. Although Heidegger's technology-based inquiry, his obsession with nostalgia have been criticized for his anti-modernist reaction, as a technophobia, it has philosophical roots and basics which cannot be simplified. Alain Badiou captured this philosophical origin and put forth a rejection on the ontological dimension to Heidegger's idea of technology-based closure and proposal of poetry and mysticism as a way out. His most basic critique is that Heidegger was unable to analyze the founding discussion of the Platonic period of philosophy from an accurate point. He has linked the inability to understand the interruption of the poetic and metaphorical narrative with sorrow in thinking about truth and existence, the way out to poetry, that is to say pre-philosophy. Based on the fact that we cannot put aside the achievements of the whole history of philosophy in the face of the declaration of the end of philosophy, Badiou defended the motto of "one more step" without the desire to return to any point. In this study, it is aimed at dialogic reading and discussion of the existence and actuality of philosophical thought on the basis of Heidegger's technology-based closing theme and Badiou's objection to him with the motto of a new step. Rejecting the end of philosophy is of great importance not only in the sense of a wish for philosophy but also preserving the autonomy and central position of philosophical thought from the weight of contemporary historical/social tendencies.
