INSIGHTS: Think Differently on ontological hermeneutics.
In the philosophy of Heidegger, by virtue of the concept of the Dasein, meaning and understanding are always embedded in world. Hence, the world serves as “the realm where the temporality and historicality of being are radically present, and the place where being translates itself into meaningfulness, understanding, and interpretation.” Understanding orients itself towards what is meaningful. Moreover, meaningfulness resides in being. In other words, understanding orients itself to being for being contains meaning, which is the object of understanding, while nothingness does not. “Understanding and meaningfulness together are the basis for language and interpretation.”
