Husserl 1982, 61) Indeed, Husserl goes on to explicitly claim that “I am not negating this ‘world’ as though I were a sophist; I am not doubting its factual being as though I were a skeptic” (Husserl 1982, 61). However, it is important not to lump all skeptics together here. Whereas Husserl seems to have in mind modern external-world skepticism, he advocates a method that is quite close to ancient skepticism, as proposed by Sextus. Unlike some modern skeptics, ancient skeptics did not deny or doubt, but simply suspended belief.

Much like Husserl, Heidegger makes it clear that the world, the other, and oneself (whom he terms “Dasein”) go together. Indeed, Dasein is such that it can be described as “being-in-the world” (Sein-in-der-Welt). The idea of being-in-the-world can be viewed as a very practical extension of the notions of intentionality and lifeworld. As Heidegger puts it: “Self and world are not two beings, like subject and object, or like I and thou, but self and world are the basic determination of the Dasein itself” (1982, 297).

Questions remain, however: What exactly is this “clearing”? And how are we to gain entry to it? Heidegger’s answer is that we must return to the beginning—that is, we must “turn towards Parmenides” (2003, 77). ” with the statement, “Being namely is” (έστι γάρ εϊναι), Heidegger claims to have been “ensnared” in this passage “for a long time,” which is certainly understandable given that it might seem to demonstrate why philosophers are often considered a bit strange (2003, 79). In Heidegger’s characteristic, even if occasionally problematic, mode of interpreting Greek philosophy, he says that the Greek phrase is better understood as “presencing namely presences” [anwest nämlich Anwesen] (2003, 79).
