Show Summary Details


This chapter suggests that the traditional conception of life informs Heidegger's understanding of being in Being and Time's existential analytics. Being and time excludes life from ontology because Heidegger sought to free Dasein from the phenomenology of living corporality. But the spatiality and affectivity of Dasein does not escape the same traditional structure that determines spatiality and affectivity in living corporality, a structure that can be identified with Aristotle's conception of “sensitive life.”

Keywords: Heidegger; life; Being and Time; living corporality; Dasein; spatiality; affectivity
