Dasein

Dasein

(German) humankind's basic mode of participation in the world: ‘Being-in-the-world’ – a central concept in HEIDEGGER's philosophy. Three main aspects of Dasein were explored by Heidegger:
  1. ‘facticity’-what is ‘given’, one's own origins;
  2. ‘extentiality’ – one's ‘purposive being’ and creative potential;
  3. the tendency to deny one's unique potential – a loss of ‘authenticity’. ‘Unauthentic’ action occurs in modes of being in which action is ‘depersonalized’, or regarded as ‘objectivized’. See also EXISTENTIALISM.

A middle-ground approach is adopted, according to which Heidegger's post-Being and Time thought is characterized by an engagement with thinking conceived from out of the domain of truth, rather than the transcendental subjectivism of Dasein; a receptivity to Being, as seen in notions like Gelassenheit and Being's "mystery"; a concentration on the "event" of Being, understood communally and historically; and philosophy conceived as a practice rather than an academic exercise.
El objetivo de esta reflexion consiste en repensar criticamente la racionalidad metodica desde la nocion de comprension, entendida no como ideal metodico, sino como la forma originaria de realizacion del Dasein, atendiendo al giro legado por Heidegger y desarrollado por Gadamer, en el que la comprension (Verstehen) es concebida como el modo de ser del Dasein.
Esta afirmacion escrita por Levinas en su madurez se ha de leer en relacion con las siguientes afirmaciones escritas por Levinas en ese periodo de profunda reflexion que se dio durante su cautiverio en el Stalag: "Partir del Dasein o partir del 'judaismo'".
