An analysis of being and time by heideggers

Being-in-the-world has concern, guided by circumspection, to discover the ready-to-hand and to preserve it as thus discovered.

Heidegger being and time

Conscience is a call to action through concern. That which can be articulated in a disclosure that we can understand, we call meaning. Conventionally, the Being of what is ready to hand gets passed over, and entities are conceived merely as a context of things that are present-at-hand. What does it mean to be? Heidegger is clear throughout the book that nothing makes certain that Dasein is capable of this understanding. It is this connection between temporality and human existence that gives rise to Heidegger's discussion of History. If the surface moved away from our hands at the same rate as we touch the surface, we should feel nothing.

Logos means letting something be seen in its togetherness [as a whole]. Think of the distinction between 1 using a pencil and 2 having the pencil break -- and just staring at it.

To us, ordinarily, space appears to be time independent, and our everyday consideration and conception of space and our use of it in conversation make it essential for our view of our environment and our being-in-the world.

Note how the future--and hence the aspect of possibility--has priority over the other two moments. And he sees this general structure in the 'empirical,' ontic level of average everydayness. Truth tests look for a concordance between observations, or more accurately between intellectual perceptions.

Find above a summary of one the greatest philosophical work of the 20th century. A panicky person behaves unidirectionally and unconstructively, that is, in a bewildered fashion. Dasein must also be understood in terms of its total possibilities.
