Ten Theses on Heidegger

4. Welt/Lichtung/Da occurs only with and as Da-sein, our apriori opened-ness.

a. Heidegger, both early, and late, holds that the human essence consists in necessarily (= apriori) being-the-Da. Da-sein = "being-in-the-open" in the double sense of "always already having been opened" and "having to be that already opened-ness.".

b. Being-the-open = being die Sache selbst.

Welt/Lichtung/Da: world/clearing/open.
die Sache selbst: the things themselves.
