The End of Fundamental Ontology

The End of Fundamental Ontology

(p.83) 4 The End of Fundamental Ontology
Division III of Heidegger's Being and Time

Daniel Dahlstrom

The MIT Press

This essay reconstructs the main theme of Being and Time’s Division III as the end of fundamental ontology. The ‘end’ here signifies both what Heidegger initially intended as its culmination and what he quickly came to see as the reason for terminating it. The reason, it is argued, is the failure of the pretension of tying the senses of being in general to a notion of temporality derived from the timely character of being-in-the-world. The essay concludes with suggestions of how the contents of the fated Division III anticipate dimensions of his later thinking.

Keywords:   Timeliness, Temporality, Ecstasis, Horizon, Kant, Transcendence, Presence, Present, schematism
