    According To Heidegger

    According to Heidegger‚ the only way of being free in the world is being free from the They-World‚ and thus being an authentic being-towards-death is ultimately the only way of becoming an authentic being.

Dasein does not refer to the entity’s “what”

    What Heidegger Means by Being-in-the-World Martin Heidegger’s main interest was to raise the issue of Being‚ that is‚ to make sense of our capacity to make sense of things.

Heidegger’s study‚ however‚ was of a specific type of Being‚ the human being‚ referred to by Heidegger as ‘Dasein’‚ which literally means ‘Being-there’ (Solomon 1972). By using the expression

Dasein‚ literally meaning "Being-there"‚ is Heidegger’s method in which he applies another prominant Existential philospher‚ Edmund Husserl’s phenomenology to human beings themselves. What it does is instead of defining a "thing" and putting it into a preconceived category‚ one waits for the "thing" to reveal itself in its own time. The remarkable thing about Heidegger is that he never calls human beings "man"‚ but instead

    Martin Heidegger regards language to be the ultimate reality‚ and holds poetry to be the highest and most authentic form. Language became a quasi-divinity‚ the ultimate reality or medium which explains the world to us. Heidegger takes this idea further to say all art is essentially poetry.
