In NDPR Joe Balay reviews Nancy J. Holland's Heidegger and the Problem of Consciousness.
As Holland notes, aletheia is irreducible to a realist conception of truth (e.g. real gold) as well as a subjectivist account of truth as judgment (e.g. I believe that it is real gold). Rather, aletheia names the ontological event between a being concerned with the significance of beings and the manifest emergence of those beings. As Holland notes, in this event Dasein "discloses a world of entities that would simply be undifferentiated 'stuff' unless we encountered them". For Heidegger then, it is only against this primordial background that one can subsequently situate representational paradigms in which a derivative correspondence conception of truth applies.
