Man as the Locus of Manifestation: On the Fundamentals of Heidegger's Philosophy in Being and Time and of His Thought after the Kehre

Jan Kuneš

Heidegger’s endeavour in his phenomenology is to understand man as the peculiar entity that he is―and not to understand him in terms of other areas of entities. The sense of his specification of man is, it is argued, that man is the place of manifestation and is, as such, essentially bound to being, which makes manifestation possible. Such a determination of the specification of man changes through both phases of Heidegger’s thought in correspondence to how Heidegger’s conception of being develops.
