This completely revised observation makes use of the latest insights in Heidegger stories to guide the reader throughout the occasionally tricky textual content of Being and Time .

In seinem 1991 erstmals erschienenen Werk weist der Philosophie- und Sozialhistoriker Panajotis Kondylis nach, dass die sozialen und geistigen Wandlungen seit dem letzten Viertel des 19. Jahrhunderts bis heute eine strukturelle Einheit bilden. Die sich im Laufe von rund one hundred fifty Jahren vollziehenden gesellschaftlichen Prozesse resultieren in einem Paradigmenwechsel: Statt der bürgerlich-liberalen Denk- und Lebensform bestimmt die egalitär-massendemokratische Konsumhaltung mit ihren Wohlstandsversprechungen die Welt des 20.

Sample text

Whether I ask the question in terms of how it is pos- Heidegger's I ntroductions 31 sible to be a scientist or to be moral, the fundamental question is always what it means to be at all. It must be clearly understood that Heidegger is in no way suggesting a psychology. When I ask the question, What does it mean to be scientific or moral ? I am not asking for an account of my psychological states, or for motives, or for determinant factors in my environment; such consid­ erations are ontic considerations, and themselves presuppose the kind of analysis done by the fundamental ontologist.

The second presupposition, concerning the indefinability of "Being," affords Heidegger an opportunity to make a very important point. The presupposition states that "Being" cannot be defined, since to define something one needs broader genera and species, and there is no broader genus than "Being, " hence it is undefinable. The argument is perfectly valid if the only way to ascribe meaning is by placing a term under broader terms. But it is precisely this technique of ascribing mean­ ing that Heidegger is to reject.

There are some reasons to hesitate in using "here" rather than "there" as a transla­ tion of Da. The term, after all, is not the same as hier. , within the immediate environment. Macquarrie and Robinson have used "there"; that term, however, lacks the immediacy of my choice. It has been pointed out to me by J. Glenn Gray that the basic meaning of Dasein is "openness," so that my use of "here" as the translation of da should be read in the sense of "Here I am, open to possibilities ! " 28 comm enta ry on Being and Time In light of this etymology, I think it is likewise incorrect to translate Dasein as "human being," because "human being" refers to an actual entity or existent, with reference to its genus and species.
