Heidegger’s Being and Time Critical Essays – …

Being and Time is a long and complex book. The reader isimmediately struck by what Mulhall (2005, viii) calls the“tortured intensity of [Heidegger's] prose”, although ifthe text is read in its original German it is possible to hear thevast number of what appear to be neologisms as attempts to reanimatethe German language. According to this latter gloss, the linguisticconstructions concerned—which involve hyphenations, unusualprefixes and uncommon suffixes—reveal the hidden meanings andresonances of ordinary talk. In any case, for many readers, theinitially strange and difficult language ofBeing and Time is fully vindicated by the realization thatHeidegger is struggling to say things for which our conventional termsand linguistic constructions are ultimately inadequate. Indeed, forsome thinkers who have toiled in its wake, Heidegger's languagebecomes the language of philosophy (although for analternative and critical view of the language of Being andTime, see Adorno 1964/2002). Viewed from the perspective ofHeidegger's own intentions, the work is incomplete. It was meantto have two parts, each of which was supposed to be divided into threedivisions. What we have published under the title of Being andTime are the first two divisions of (the intended) part one. Thereasons for this incompleteness will be explored later in thisarticle.

Why does Heidegger think that “interpretation is never a presuppositionless apprehending ofsomething presenting to us” (191).

Rorty, Richard | Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy

On the interpretation of Heidegger just given, Dasein's accessto the world is only intermittently that of a representing subject. Analternative reading, according to which Dasein always existsas a subject relating to the world via representations, is defended byChristensen (1997, 1998). Christensen targets Dreyfus (1990) as aprominent and influential exponent of the intermittent-subject view.Among other criticisms, Christensen accuses Dreyfus ofmistakenly hearing Heidegger's clear rejection of the thoughtthat Dasein's access to the world is always theoretical (ortheory-like) in character as being, at the same time, a rejection ofthe thought that Dasein's access to the world is always in themode of a representing subject; but, argues Christensen, there may benon-theoretical forms of the subject-world relation, so the claim thatHeidegger advocated the second rejection is not established by pointingout that he advocated the first. Let's assume that Christensen isright about this. The supporter of the intermittent-subject view mightstill argue that although Heidegger holds that Daseinsometimes emerges as a subject whose access to the world isnon-theoretical (plausibly, in certain cases of un-readiness-to-hand),there is other textual evidence, beyond that which indicates thenon-theoretical character of hitch-free skilled activity, to suggestthat readiness-to-hand must remain non-subject-object in form. Whetheror not there is such evidence would then need to besettled.
