Martin Heidegger - Being and Time
Size: 13 MB
The Being of truth is connected primordially with Dasein. And only because Dasein is as constituted by disclosedness (that is, by understanding), can anything like Being be understood ; only so is it possible to understand Being.
Being (not entities) is something which 'there is' only in so far as truth is. And truth is only in so far as and as long as Dasein is. Being and truth 'are' equiprimordially. What does it signify that Being 'is', where Being is to be distinguished from every entity? One can ask this concretely only if the meaning of Being and the full scope of the understanding of Being have in general been clarified. Only then can one also analyse primordially what belongs to the concept of a science of Being as such, and to its possibilities and its variations. And in demarcating this research and its truth, the kind of research in which entities are uncovered, and its accompanying truth, must be defined ontologically.
