Example text

19E). Whether “authentic” or “inauthentic” (terms that we will later treat at greater length), Da-sein’s sojourning as a time-ly being is a structurally integrated process in which all three temporal dimensions live simultaneously, with the future, on Heidegger’s view, as the distinctive facet for being-in-the-world as throwing thrownness. Da-sein’s being underway is a running ahead: “[T]he fundamental phenomenon of time is the future” (p. 14E). He opines in “Time and Being”: Da-sein: Opening Thoughts 29 To talk of what is coming toward us has meanwhile become a cliché.

This way of speaking shows the eventful nature of human being: We appear and dwell in the open region of world. We must exist in some particular place at some particular time: “There” means that we stand out in the world as distinctive localized beings. The word there also contains the word here, and part of the truth of our being is the fact that we always and already exist here (and now) in our own world. We could say: Human beings “appear there” or emerge in the world in the midst of beings and “dwell here” in a world of meanings and projects.

His entire philosophical career hinges on this matter of thinking as explored and expressed in a number of ways. Heidegger investigates being: what it is for something—anything at all—to be. Being is not merely a being or beings, although it is also not something beyond beings or a merely formal and therefore empty category. He endeavors to “say” being, and in Being and Time and throughout his corpus he does so, in the final analysis, by way of the human sort of being. Everything (anything) that is, is by virtue of being.
