[Xmca-l] Re: Taxis and Embedding in Conversation



Larry,

Dasein is usually unpacked as ‘Being-there,’ and it is said that Heidegger’s point was that humans understand themselves, and one another, in terms of their situatedness. In the here-&-now, not in the entire cosmos!  :)

There is a discussion of mitsein in Being & Time, too. But Gadamer certainly gave it more emphasis than Heidegger did. Mitsein, for Heidegger, is a mode or aspect of Dasein. It is a way in which Dasein (human being) can be.
