Division III of Heidegger's Being and Time

Lee Braver

The MIT Press

I examine the possibility that Heidegger did in fact finish Being and Time, cramming a rushed, compacted version of Division III into Division II, starting at §65. Division II up to this point completes the analysis of existence, while the final quarter of the book examines the temporality of various modes of being, precisely what Division III was to do. I also discuss the feasibility of giving any answer at all to the question of being. I ask whether §§43-44 on truth and reality could have been sketches of what he was going to say in Division III. Finally, I look at his discussions of being itself in the later work to see if they fix problems with Being and Time in its present form.
