Jump into the Source. Return to the Beginning in Martin Heidegger's Contributions to Philosophy

     The presented text is an attempt to show Heidegger's conception of returning to the source as a jump - Ursprung. Heidegger presented this concept in his famous book by title Contributions to Philosophy. This book seems to be a breakthrough in his thinking, because it shows the way to being alone without the help of entity, it means, Heidegger in this book departs from the conception of fundamental ontology as shown in the work of Being and time, which meant discovering the truth of being by entity, specifically, through Dasein's analysis. Contributions to Philosophy shows a different path, namely by the enowning of being - Ereignis. Such position is referred as "return" - Kehre. The sense of return made by Heidegger is exacerbated by the question of the sense of being, the question that comes down to making a violent intrusion - jump into the source, which is being itself. The jump - Ursprung is fundamental importance here, because it is some kind of Dasein's command, but it also shows the proper meaning of the beginning - arche, principium as the power, the ground and the hidden source. Heidegger invites the reader to a journey to the philosophical source - he invites to the jump into the abyss of the mystery of being. In this way according to him philosophy shows his real and true face.
