"Despite the centrality of hearing to Being and Time, Heidegger's ears are rarely engaged as significant. This essay speculates on how Heidegger's acoustic biography might inform readings of Being and Time. Specifically, it explores the relationship between what Heidegger heard and the theory of attunement that undergirds his existential analytic. Heidegger heard his world as deeply ‘out of tune’ and responded by crafting a text to re-tune it. Being and Time must be engaged, then, as a tuning that seeks to transform philosophy by altering hearing itself, by readying the ears not to fly, flee, or plunge but to stand reticent."
