discern new motifs surfacing up every time No single review can fully justify the thoughts running throughout the book I did try jotting down few thoughts but am sure I still have missed some of them, which I might add later after reading it the second time.Coming straight to book, Being does not means presence, rather being is time and likewise never really shows its presence A being isthan what it actually looks like, its limitation isthan its physical dimension By defining any object or being as per its usefulness or appearance or even concept is to exaggerate a particular character to give it a grotesque effect Since, there is alwaysto what one perceives Defining never captures the essence of being.Even if we stare a thing, we do not see its complete picture, the wholeness is always missing There is some part of the object, which is always hidden Heidegger uses the term withdrawal to this phenomenon.Heidegger s concept of time too is not limited to watch or calendar rather it is a kind of temporality that can be experienced in any single moment.For instance, we use our tools without explicitly noticing them, like hammer Our radar of focus is the thing we are building than tools or hammer we are using Even if it the hammer breaks, it will remainthan what we are seeing, a broken tool This implies, the being of hammer is always absent, even if it works underneath the entire building operation However, the hammer or the things around us, be it trees, candles, table or books are not always absent Had they been in the state of absence, there would have been no relation between these objects and us.A book for me is a voyage, a learning expedition but the same book for a baby is nothingthan a rectangular thing with pages to fiddle about, thus, the person who encounters an object determines its presence, which again is not the object s complete picture.Joining the two pieces of the mentioned thought processes together create the two sides of a story First is, the part of an object that is hidden, to which Heidegger calls past and the second, characteristics that make thing present, word used for this is future By combining these two entities, a new form of present is born, which is torn between being of things and the physical dimension that is perceived by us The world is continuously moving back and forth between these two entities Heidegger has called this endless tossing as time.It is with this audacious thought, Heidegger questions the credibility of history of philosophy that till then have limited the objects to their mere presence, thus ignoring the other side, which as per him, completes the entire reality Modern technology too has reduced the objects merely to their presence by focusing only on the utility functions.According to Heidegger, concept of time is only relevant to beings and not to any inanimate objects As indicated by his theory, humans are the only entities that exist in the world, rest of the objects do not have access of the surrounding world Dasein is the German term that has not been translated, which signifies human existence or the state of being in his entire work The term cannot be replaced with human being since the word is already saturated with lots of conventional theories and prejudices For instance, human beings are considered higher mammals with rational abilities, creatures that build up structures with the help of tools, advanced African Apes, curious beings that play around with technologies or mortal bodies encasing immortal souls Heidegger wanted to minus these theories completely, so he created Dasein, which can only be looked with a single beam of philosophical light and character of which is only temporality.Objects like tree, stone, table can have a present at hand single physical view but human beings like coin have two dimensional interplay and this interplay is termed as time.This thought process of Heidegger s echoes Critique of Pure Reason, the famous 18th century work by Immanuel Kant As stated by Kant in first critique, philosophically, discussing things as they are have no bottom line Limitations of humans with respect to their experiences are one of the major hurdles in defining the actuality It is beyond the understanding of humans to comprehend something to its completeness For example, humans cannot comprehend whether space and time can exist independent with respect to themselves humans However, they can assert that both are necessary for human survival It is next to impossible for humans to decipher as to what or how it is to feel outside human experience The dimension is still unexplored and unfathomable for human beings.Thus, Heidegger in BT refers to the interplay between the actuality of things that is of course hidden on one hand while the oversimplified shimmering appearance of objects on the other.His ideas are simple but the Heideggerian terminologies make this work slightly difficult to read Still the book has its own charm Writing a thorough review would mean, submitting a thesis on BT As mentioned at the beginning, I m gonna sit again to read the book and this time, and sureideas would surface to add to my existing review This is the best book I have ever read I had no problem with the translator, Joan Staumbaugh seemed to have done a very good job I couldn t imagine reading this book in German even if I spoke fluent German because the way Heidegger appropriates words This edition provides Heidegger s added footnotes and the edition provides a much needed and used by me Lexicon for the Latin and Greek phrases I had no idea what Being and Time was going to be about before I read it Every synopsis that I had This is the best book I have ever read I had no problem with the translator, Joan Staumbaugh seemed to have done a very good job I couldn t imagine reading this book in German even if I spoke fluent German because the way Heidegger appropriates words This edition provides Heidegger s added footnotes and the edition provides a much needed and used by me Lexicon for the Latin and Greek phrases I had no idea what Being and Time was going to be about before I read it Every synopsis that I had ever come across through my Great Course lectures, history of philosophy books and youtube videos were completely off the mark The book was a template on how I ve approached my life up until now and I didn t realize that somebody else thought as similarly but in formal philosophical structures as I do about the nature of the human experience There is an incredibly nuanced presentation of the nature of science that runs through out the book that predates Thomas Kuhn s The Structures of Scientific Revolutions but follows it substantially We are thrown in to the world and must cope by our structure of care and care is not what you think it means.Have no doubt about it this book reads difficulty I would recommend skipping the introduction and read it after you ve read the book The book reads a lot like Finnegans Wake, but just realize that as in the Wake each sentence and paragraph has a reason for being placed in the book I would strongly recommend listening to the Hubert Dreyfus 2007 course on the book given at University of California Berkeley freely available from Itunes before you start reading this book If I had not, I would not have been able to finish the book I make it a rule that after I have read a book I sell it back to the greatest used bookstore in the known universe, Coas in Las Cruces, NM This book is the exception I ll keep a copy for future re readings This I will re read, and re read, and re read, until I get all the chapters This book actually blew me away and made me think differently about a lot.My philosophy teacher told us to fall in love with the philosopher we re studying , like he had with Heidegger, and so I did too completely ignoring the fact he was a nazi I will return to this very soon. This book made my life come back into light It also serves as proof that philosophy is about life, and nothing else Being and Time renewed a sense of autonomy and history that I hadn t thought possible, my responsibility for the places, people, and meanings I carry with me, and those that I choose to leave behind. I would rate this as the number one philosophical book written in the 1900 s I wish I had read it in my twenties Given, it is at times frustrating to read, however it is also addicting at the same time This is one of the books I will keep with me for life. Is it unreadable Yes Were the 17 words I did understand enough to blow my mind and change my life and understanding of philosophy and being Yep. done.it was like losing my philosophical virginity and it feels like everything i have read until now was a preparation for this including my dipping in it for seven years or so and i m glad i read and discussed augustine s confessions with a wonderful group of people, during a course otherwise i would have understood nothing at all from the part about temporality.the dynamic of the book is very musical, it seemed to me drone like as if the loooong sounds are repeated and repeated ag done.it was like losing my philosophical virginity and it feels like everything i have read until now was a preparation for this including my dipping in it for seven years or so and i m glad i read and discussed augustine s confessions with a wonderful group of people, during a course otherwise i would have understood nothing at all from the part about temporality.the dynamic of the book is very musical, it seemed to me drone like as if the loooong sounds are repeated and repeated again, creating a texture which changes your mood your attunement making you able to see how a new ground is disclosed.of course i can t say anything coherent about it and i don t think anything coherent needs to be said in this review.there s no substitute for reading it if you want to understand where contemporary philosophy is coming from
