Dasein and da-sein in being and time and in contributions to philosophy (from enowning)

Friedrich-Wilhelm Von Herrmann, Bernhard Radloff

pp. 213-224

This study addresses the interlingual translation of the "Da" – a central concept of Being and Time, while examining the translation of Ereignis – a central concept of Contributions to Philosophy. The paper contests the naive rendering of the "Da" in English as the "there," taking note that, from within a "transcendental-horizonal perspective," the "Da" includes the projecting-opening of disclosedness and thus never refers to a spatial determination as "there." Correlatively, from the perspective of being-historical thinking, the "Da" implicates the enowning throw of be-ing. Turning attention to Ereignis, the paper argues for its rendering as "enowning."
