Sample text

24 As Heidegger recognized, phenomenology must be existential if it is to succeed in understanding how philosophy itself is possible-but existentialism must be phenomenological if its daims are to be grounded in anything other than speculation and construction. It is for this reason that Husserl has little patience when Heidegger appears to wander into speculative waters with his talk of "Being" in the absence of any reference to how such Being is experienced as such. This type of account cannot possibly be justified, Husserl thinks, since philosophical self'Tesponsibility demands that we refrain from making ontological daims about things that transcend the bounds of possible experience.

Thus, the they main tains itself factically in the averageness of what is proper, what is allowed, and what is not. Ofwhat is granted success and what is not" (BT 127/119). l do not decide what makes for a successful woman, philosopher, citizen; the social context that defines these roles and interpretations does. My evelyday way of existing is determined on the basis of the easy and familial' patterns provided and encouraged by the public meanings and standards in which 1 find myself. This tendency for aIl possibilities to become average and general is what Heidegger refers to as leveling down.

Chapter 2 takes up the first issue. There 1 will argue that though Heidegger is indeed claiming that my everyday self-understandings are in a certain sense not my own-since they are provided by the general inherited public meanings and norms according to which we aU understand ourselves-he nevertheless leaves room for the fact that our everyday self-understandings are in sorne sense always our own. Chapter 3 examines the second problem-the fact that Heidegger must face a version of the traditional problem of other minds.
