Being And Time

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines Being and Time, looking at the problem of fundamental ontology in relation to Kant and Heidegger, and the existential analysis of the world, in-being, the unified totality of finite transcendence, and the sense of finite transcendence. The first section looks into Kant's and Heidegger's ontologies, the phenomenology, antecedents, presuppositions, and the starting point of everydayness, as well as the terminologies of existentialism, existentiell, authenticity, and inauthenticity. The second section deals with existential analysis. The components of in-being are comprehension, disposition, logos, and fallen-ness. In addition, it examines finite transcendence based on its unity, totality, authenticity, temporality, and historicity. The last section provides some general remarks about truth and subjectivism.

Keywords: Being and Time; Kant; Heidegger; existential analysis; finite transcendence; truth subjectivism
