Sample text

This moment of the question plots the implicit understanding of the Being of beings. In it, Being is understood. But, for this understanding to be authentically, a second moment must be added to it, the interpretation that moves from what is asked about to what is sought by the asking. In this movement, the question is conducted without beings. This movement departs from the understanding of the Being of beings, by involvement with which beings are, and proceeds, by interpretation of this previous understanding, to the meaning of Being.

Before [an equipment shows itself] a totality of equipment has already been discovered. (BT, 97–98) In other words, beings encountered by existence are only in terms of the totality to which they belong. Beings are not first encountered by an aim that sets its sights simply on what is but by broader, circumspective aims that see of what beings are, aims that refer them to the context or totality beyond merely what it is. Heidegger claims that the Being of these beings is an assignment or reference relationship.

To the question who? answers the non-qualifiable presence of an existent [un étant] who presents himself without reference to anything, and yet distinguishes himself from every other existent [étant]. The question who? envisages a face” (TI, 177). In the question Who? a being manifests itself such as it is without reference to a context in terms of which it is; the approach of the face, thus, is not conditioned by a horizon wherein it appears. Though presenting itself without reference to anything else, the face is distinguished from all beings.
