Chapter Summary

The author attempts to develop the conception of the singularity of the subject of obligation by way of the conception of the temporality as the meaning of care, which is the essential aspect of Being and Time. The discussion hinge on Heidegger's term being-in-the-world and makes clear Heidegger's break with the Cartesian notion of the substantiality of subject. But one can argue that the passivity is foreclosed in the hermeneutic circularity of being-in-the-world. Immediately before introducing the central idea of temporality as ecstatikon, Heidegger makes the crucial remark that "Temporality "is" not a being at all. Heidegger grounds the question of historicity in Dasein's originary temporal structure of care which is disclosed, existentially, in Dasein's anticipatory resoluteness. Discourse is the pre-eminent mode of Dasein's being-with. Discourse, as saying and speaking, along with attunement and understanding, is fundamental to Dasein's mode of being-there or being-in-the-world.

Keywords: Cartesian notion; Dasein; Heidegger; temporality
