Division III of Heidegger's Being and Time

Richard Polt

The MIT Press

Heidegger’s shift away from the transcendental thinking of Being and Time is sometimes taken as a rejection of subjectivism, but this chapter argues that Heidegger’s transcendentalism was never subjectivist. Instead, at least one factor that led him to abandon transcendentalism was the question of the origin of time. This question, which could not even be raised within the transcendental framework of Heidegger’s temporal ontology, spurred him to inquire into a mysterious event in which our temporality itself is founded, together with our relationship to being. Thus Heidegger moved “from the understanding of being to the happening of being,” as he writes in 1935.

Keywords:   subjectivity, time, temporality, transcendentalism
