Example text

He will have to convince us there is a meaning of truth other than the categorical one. We have to wait until section thirty-three of Being and Time until we find out what this truth might be, but before we get there, and as a summary of where we have got to so far, we can already say there are three ways in which Heidegger tries to avoid describing the existential through the categorical, and they are all guided by the idea that it is our average everyday experience of the world which is the source for the meaning of Being.

Not only do we not know the answer to the question, we do not even know how to ask the question properly or even what the question is asking us. There are good historical reasons, which we shall come to in the third section of this chapter, why we are so perplexed, but we must all start with some understanding of Being, otherwise there would be nowhere to begin at all.

Let us then start with our ordinary understanding of Being and see if this helps to get us beyond our initial confusion.

Kant’s subject is still the subject of the cogito, and not Dasein. Even Descartes’ ontology (despite his protestations) in the Meditations and the Discourse on the Method is a repetition of Scholastic thought, whose ontology has its basis in Aristotle.
