As Heidegger tells us, “when tradition becomes master, it does so in such a way that what it ‘transmits’ is made so inaccessible, proximally and for the most part, that it rather becomes concealed. Tradition takes what has come down to us and delivers it over to self-evidence; it blocks our access to those primordial ‘sources’ from which the categories and concepts handed down to us have been in part quite genuinely drawn” (BT, 43). So, to go back ‘to the things themselves!’ is very significant and indispensable in unconcealing the real ‘sources’.
