In the context of a paradox of nearness in today’s age of modern
technology—that the abolition of distances brings no nearness—this thesis
investigates what nearness means for Martin Heidegger. For Heidegger,
nearness could only be encountered through moments of bringing-near of
distant elements together into a meaningful whole, be it through (i)
Dasein’s character of de-distancing; (ii) gathering and dwelling; and (iii)
language, as poetic measurement and Saying. Nearness preserves both the
near and the far, leading us to a primordial space that goes beyond an
understanding of spatiality and calculation of distances as purely physical
and mathematical.

*The thesis defense is open to the Loyola Schools community.*
