Kenneth Maly explains.
one way to say what happens in Heidegger's work of thinking (and in his opus) is that his thinking continually, with undivided attention, passionately circles around the domain (called the 'question of being') that

  • does not reside in human beings, even as humans participate in its make-up;

  • is not conceived, created, or controlled by human reason;

  • is not a thing, an entity, or a being -- is rather nothing, no-thing;

  • cannot be gotten at within or via analytic thought or the language of definition, literalness, or denotation;

  • is other than the being of metaphysics.

Named unconcealment, the temporality of being, ἀλήθεια, λόγος, enowning, time-space, regioning of the region, fourfold, emergence -- in all these names Heidegger's thinking stays with this one matter: how to think/say what sustains things/beings without itself being a being, how to think/say the dynamic of emergence, ongoing unfolding, unconcealment itself, as what sustains thinking/saying, and thus sustains being-human.
