In is ‘Introduction to Metaphysics,’ Heidegger shows how history is intimately connected to racial ‘being.’ It is not merely the mark of the human race ‘being’ on the planet, but the essence of the human race ‘being’ on the planet. And even with our very first breath, we violently displace the air and take up space. This is done by the force of ‘being.’ History and violence cannot be separated from our ‘beingness.’ What does this say for the evolutionary ideal of peace? Peace and violence seem to have a cyclic nature with the evolution of our society. Though the consideration of violence, as a part of the human ideal seems very counter-intuitive.
