Heidegger's Polemos

Gregory Fried

Yale University Press

This chapter begins by reconstructing the meaning of “being” that Heidegger implied in his introduction to Being and Time. The chapter thus explores the process through which Heidegger arrives at answers and solutions to the question of Being. Heidegger argues that we already have a conception and understanding of Being in the sense that we are immersed through Being-in-this-world, and that this immersion gives us access to beings in a cosmos of meanings and activities. It covers the fundamental concepts that would help shape Heidegger's understanding of phenomenology—or as it is defined: “to let that which shows itself be seen from itself in the way that it shows itself.” It further explores how Heidegger describes the process through which we (the being that Heidegger calls Dasein) understand Being.

Keywords:   Being, Heidegger, Being and Time, phenomenology, Dasein, question of Being
