AHB on Phenomenological Realism.
[I] aim is to demonstrate that no philosophical account of our situation as the beings that are here (Da-)- alone amongst others - can be considered complete unless it is a phenomenological realism. Phenomenological realism has two tasks: to describe the structure of what Heidegger calls a priori cognition in the ontological sphere and to demonstrate the absolute necessity of contingency or, for the purposes of this paper, the radical contingency of natural laws. I claim, in line with Meillassoux, that ‘what is the case’ is absolutely contingent as it is ‘in-itself.’ I further hold that in so much as it is contingent it does not appear that way to us in phenomenal experience.
