V. The Grounding [356-358]

is in each case that being-a-self in which the human being becomes steadfast.

Every projection places back in relation to the projector that which set into the clearing of the projection and is thereby first set free. And the converse also holds: the projector first becomes himself by taking over that incorporating relation.

What is set into the projection is never something utterly in itself, nor can the projector ever posit himself purely for himself. Instead, this strife (the fact that each counterpart turns toward the other in relating back and incorporating) is a consequence of the intimacy that essentially occurs in the essence of truth as the clearing of what is selfconcealing. A mere extrinsic dialectic of the subject-object relation does not capture anything here. Rather, this relation itself, grounded on correctness as a scion of truth, originates out of the essence of truth.

To be sure, this origin of the strife and the strife itself must now be demonstrated. That requires more than simply pondering the clearing and the way it is founded through the projection. Instead, we must recognize above all that the clearing brings what is self-concealing into the open and allows the selfhood of the projector to be pervasively attuned by the captivation which, as determining, arises out of the openness. Only in that way does there occur in each case the consigning appropriation to being and, in this consignment, the assignment to the projector himself, whereby he for his part first comes to stand in the clearing (of what is self-concealing) and becomes steadfast in the "there."

The more essentially beyng belongs to Da-sein and vice versa, the more originarily do these turn toward each other in not letting themselves be free of each other.

The projector must take over the incorporating relation, and thereby the thrownness first comes to bear fruit, inasmuch as we see that the projector himself belongs to what is opened up in the clearing and to what is thereby brought into the open.

230. Truth and correctness

The priority of correctness establishes and makes self-evident the claim to explanation in the sense of a derivation of beings as possible productions of other beings ("mathesis," "mechanics" understood as broadly as possible).

When such explanation breaks down, appeal is made to the inexplicable, or else it is maintained consistently that what cannot be explained is not a being.
