Sample text

16 In investigating the relation between human beings and the objects surrounding them, the traditional approach overlooks the phenomenon of the world. The question regarding the validity of the external world arises at the outset, through the very formulation of this problem – is there, and in what way, a correspondence between the idea (the mental representation) and the thing in itself (that which exists in the external world)? Heidegger’s solution for this problem is that understanding is a mode of being-in-the-world (in-der-Weltsein) which could be comprehended philosophically by studying how knowledge is manifest as something with which we are already engaged in our everyday life.

Instead of trying to base a theory of the world on conjectures, intuitions and categories, Heidegger asks that we allow ourselves to see how we are already involved in the very world we wish to investigate. For example, when we wake up each morning, as we turn on the faucet and fill the electric kettle with water, as we take a glass from the cupboard and put it on the kitchen counter, as we put in a teaspoon of coffee, pour in the hot water, stir just a bit and then let the grains sink to the bottom, to make the coffee more delectable, we are utilizing the things around us, using them in a way which indicates our ability to understand their function and their nature.

The ontological layer of being (Sein) encompasses the ontic layer, in which beings (Seienden) exist (in traditional philosophical terminology, these are known mostly as objects). According to Heidegger, this distinction reveals being as an ontological concept which includes things as well as their being and the horizon of their possibilities. In contrast, when encountering beings, we encounter isolated entities existing on the ontic layer. Within the philosophical tradition, one could refer to the Heideggerian distinction which renounces the metaphysical-epistemological tradition which isolated human existence from the world.
