Example text

In certain cases, ‘‘factical life ‘can’ be centered in an 30 Heidegger’s ‘‘Religion’’ especially accented way on the self-world’’ (G58 57). Heidegger goes on to designate this phenomenon as the ‘‘intensifying concentration [Zugespitztheit ] towards the self-world’’ (G58 59). In a supplemental remark, Heidegger notes that ‘‘this does not take place in a deliberate way, the self does not consciously observe itself, rather it lies in the factical flow [Ablauf ] of life itself ’’ (G58 206). In other words, moments of intensified reflection on life are not necessarily instances of the ‘‘theoretical attitude’’ at work.

For Windelband and Rickert, despite their other differences, a ‘‘category’’ is a ‘‘synthetic form of consciousness’’ (G56/57 160/136). These ‘‘categories,’’ along with the synthesizing consciousness itself, form the bedrock of explanation in neo-Kantian theories of knowledge. /145). Heidegger also devotes considerable attention to the neo-Kantian position in the summer semester of 1920. Again, ‘‘categories’’ are the forms under which sensibly given material is synthesized by the spontaneity of the understanding (G59 25).

33 According to Oskar Becker’s transcript of this lecture course, Heidegger is interested in avoiding the ‘‘ ‘de-historicization of the I’ ’’ and cultivating a ‘‘primordial science’’ (G56/57 206/174, 207/145). One key element in this lies in attending to ‘‘genuine life-experiences’’ (G56/57 207/175). Presumably, it is in these experiences that one gains a kind of understanding access to the living, historical ‘‘I’’ without ‘‘objectifying’’ it. Heidegger’s suggestion is that such phenomena grant the phenomenologist a unique window into the structure of life.
