Example text

A situation is not neutral; it provides Motivation. In BT Ereignis is still used for an event that happens to me. It can apply to 'a storm, refurbishing one's house or the arrival of a friend, hence to things that are present-at-hand, ready-to-hand or there-with-us' (BT, 250). Vorkommnis and vorkommen are usually reserved for the vorhanden, the 'present-at-hand' (cf. BT, 119). Words beginning with vor- are often associated with the present-at-hand and the theoretical, objectifying attitude, as when 'coming across oneself [Sich-vorfinden] perceptually' is contrasted with 'finding oneself in a mood [gestimmtes Sichbefinden]' (BT, 135).

The existing entity) steps forth. This notion of existence is taken over by Kierkegaard, who restricts it to man, the only being ensnared in the 'contradiction of temporality and eternity' (Nil, 475/ep, 70). Hegel's system, Kierkegaard argued, propounds 'eternal' truths. But one cannot live in a system; it gives no guidance on the decisions that life, even the philosopher's life, requires. Eternal truths, especially those of Christianity, cannot be reached step by step from historical truths, but only by a leap of faith.

He speaks of 'gods' owing to his love of ancient Greece and of nature - once the abode of the gods, but now being destroyed by technology (LXV, 277). But he disavows any definite view on the number of gods (LXV, 411, 437). Gods are intimately connected with man's conception of himself. When man regards himself as an 'extant "specimen" of the genus "human being"' he has no 'claim to a coming of the god, not even a claim to the experience of the flight of the gods. This very experience presupposes that the historical human being is aware of himself as transported into the open centre of beings which are abandoned by the truth of their being' (LXV, 61).
