The paper is developed with respect to heidegger's thesis of "the end of philosophy and the task of thinking"; its point of departure is jaspers's admonition that "philosophy must not abdicate, Least of all today," which may be understood as the motto of his life and work. Heidegger is not concerned, As is jaspers, Over the "gold" of the "perennial philosophy" but, Against the background of the "question of being," over the "destruction" of western philosophy as such
