عنوان مقاله [English]
According to Heidegger, Western nihilism arises from it is metaphysics-stricken history beginning from Plato. Since it ignores existence and concerns itself with existents, metaphysics leads to nihilism. Heidegger’s solution for dealing with metaphysics and nihilism is to turn our attention to art. Art reveals a world that has already existed, thereby it creates a people and its history and overcomes metaphysics. The problem in this article is how metaphysics leads to nihilism and how art overcomes metaphysics. By adopting an analytic-inferential method, the article aims to show that the problem lies in the relationship between metaphysics and art, on the one hand, and the sensible, on the other. We seek to show the relationship between the two in order to demonstrate the role of art in overcoming metaphysics. We conclude that metaphysics has relegated the sensible to an unreal existent, while art can create and realize the sensible from a non-metaphysical starting point, in which way it can make it possible to overcome metaphysics.
