This chapter examines Martin Heidegger's phenomenological ontology, explaining that Heidegger claims that phenomenological ontology is not epistemology and arguing that his analysis of being is a restricted form of epistemology. It addresses Heideggerian concerns with the ontological theory of truth as aletheia, the relation of phenomenology to things themselves, and the history of ontology. The chapter also provides an account of Heidegger's critical readings of Immanuel Kant in Kant and the Problem of Metaphysics and of Kant and René Descartes in Being and Time.
