DASEIN

SERIES #22




„To think is to confine yourself to a single thought that one day stands still like a star in the world's sky."

Martin Heidegger


It is held that 'Being' is of all concepts the one that is self- evident. Whenever one cognizes anything or makes an assertion, whenever one comports oneself towards entities, even towards oneself, some use is made of 'Being'; and this expression is held to be intelligible 'without further ado', just as everyone understands "The sky is blue', 'I am merry', and the like.


"If Dasein, in its concern, brings something close by, this does not signify that it fixes something at a spatial position with a minimal distance from some point of the body. When something is close by, this means that it is within the range of what is proximally ready-to-hand for circumspection. Bringing-close is not oriented towards the I-Thing encumbered with a body, but towards concernful Being-in-the-world — that is, towards what- ever is proximally encountered in such Being. It follows, moreover, that Dasein's spatiality is not to be defined by citing the position at which some corporeal Thing is present-at-hand. Of course we say that even Dasein always occupies a place. But this 'occupying' must be distinguished in principle from Being-ready-to-hand at a place in some particular region. Occupying a place must be conceived as a desevering of the environmentally ready-to-hand into a region which has been circumspec- tively discovered in advance. As Being-in-the-world, Dasein maintains itself essentially in a de- severing. This de-severance — the farness of the ready- to-hand from Dasein itself — is something that Dasein can never cross over."

In the call of conscience, what is it that is talked about — in other words, to what is the appeal made? Manifestly Dasein itself. This answer is as incontestable as it is indefinite. If the call has so vague a target, then it might at most remain an occasion for Dasein to pay attention to itself.
The ownmost possibility is non-relational. Anticipation allows Dasein to understand that that potentiality-for-being in which its ownmost Being is an issue, must be taken over by Dasein alone. Death does not just 'belong' to one's own Dasein in an undifferentiated way; death lays claim to it as an individual Dasein. The non-relational character of death, as understood in anticipation, individualizes Dasein down to itself. This individualizing is a way in which the 'there' is disclosed for existence. It makes manifest that all Being-alongside the things with which we concern ourselves, and all Being-with Others, will fail us when our ownmost potentiality-for- Being is the issue. Dasein can be authentically itself only if it makes this possible for itself of its own accord. But if concern and solicitude fail us, this does not signify at all that these ways of Dasein have been cut off from its authentically Being-its-Self.

In this attestation an authentic potentiality-for-Being-one's-Self is to be given us to understand. The question of the "who" of Dasein has been answered with the expression 'Self'. 1 Dasein's Selfhood has been defined formally as a way of existing, and therefore not as an entity present-at-hand. For the most part / myself am not the "who" of Dasein; the they-self is its "who". Authentic Being-one's-Self takes the definite form of an exis- tentiell modification of the "they"; and this modification must be defined existentially. 11 What does this modification imply, and what are the ontological conditions for its possibility?
Здесь нужно сказать об определённом моменте времени
И о протяжённости во времени бытия здесь и сейчас
The making-present which awaits and retains, interprets itself And this in turn is possible only because, as something which in itself is ecstatically open, it has in each case been disclosed to itself already and can be Articulated in the kind of interpretation which is accompanied by under- standing and discourse. Because temporality is ecstatko-horizonally constitutive for the clearedness of the "there", temporality is always primordially interpretable in the "there" and is accordingly familiar to us. The making-present which interprets itself — in other words, that which has been interpreted and is addressed in the 'now' — is what we call 'time'.
