§185 [304-306]

Prior to this dislodgment, being-away occurs and indeed even occurs constantly. Being-away as denial of the exposure to the truth of beyng.

184. The question of being as the question of the truth of beyng

Here the essence of beyng cannot be read off from any particular being or from all known beings taken together. Indeed a reading-off is quite impossible. The task is an original projection and a leap that can draw its necessity only out of the deepest history of mankind, insofar as the human being is experienced and is sustained in essence as the being that is exposed to beings (and, in the first place, to the truth of beyng) such that this exposure constitutes the ground of the essence of the human being (preserver, steward, seeker). Even the postulation of the ἰδέα is not a reading-off! To know this is already to overcome such postulation.

Is the truth of beyng to be determined prior to beyng and without regard to beyng, or after beyng and only with respect to it, or neither of these but, instead, in unity with beyng because truth belongs to the essential occurrence of beyng?

The transcendental way (though a different "transcendence") merely provisional, in order to prepare the turnaround and the leap.

185. What does Da-sein mean?

1. The task in "beyng and time": the question of being as the question of the "meaning of beyng"; cf. the "Preliminary remarks" in Being and Time.

Fundamental ontology transitional. It exposes the ground of all ontology and overcomes all ontology but must necessarily proceed from what is familiar and ordinary. Therefore fundamental ontology always stands in a twi-light.

2. The question of being and the question of the human being. Fundamental ontology and anthropology.

3. Being human as Da-sein (cf. Laufende Anmerkungen zu "Sein und Zeit").

4. The question of being as an overcoming of the guiding question. Unfolding of the guiding question; cf. the structure of that question. What does un-folding mean? Reabsorption into the ground that is to be opened up.
