Unconcealing is not restricted to consciousness. The term Dasein, which from the perspective Heidegger, Scotus and Univocity 43 of fundamental ontology can be applied to any human agent, means, in its verbal sense, ‘to be present’ or ‘to exist’ and in its sense as a noun ‘presence’ or ‘existence’. The prefi x Da of Da-sein includes in its meaning ‘there’, ‘here’ and ‘then’ and indicates a ‘place’ and ‘time’ of an event. Dasein (t/here-being or being-t/here) is the site where unconcealment happens.

In Aristotle’s Categories, univocity/ synonymy is implied when a secondary substance is predicated of a primary substance since there is a common content of meaning (specifically, definition) intended between the two regions. Similarly, in Heidegger’s ontology, univocity will be implied between various regions of being since when they are intended they will be intended temporally, with reference to Dasein’s temporality. All the propositions of ontology are temporal propositions. The univocity of being is rooted in Dasein’s temporality.
