Sample text

Passages in which Heidegger himself breaks it up with a hyphen (‘Da-sein’) to show its etymological construction: literally ‘Being-there’. Though in traditional German philosophy it may be used quite generally to stand for almost any kind of Being or ‘existence’ which we can say that something has . . in everyday usage it tends to be used more narrowly to stand for the kind of Being that belongs to persons. Heidegger . . often uses it to stand for any person who has such Being . . (Cited in Friedman, 1964: 95n) The second spells out a tricky distinction: ‘Ontological inquiry is concerned primarily with Being; ontical inquiry is concerned primarily with entities and the facts about them’ (cited in Friedman, 1964: 97n).

The world that I distinguished from myself as a sum of things or of causally connected processes is re-discovered ‘in me’ as the permanent horizon of all my thinking and as a dimension in relation to which I never cease to situate myself. The genuine Cogito does not define the existence of the subject by the thought that it has of existing. It does not convert the certitude of the world into certitude of the world as thought, nor does it replace the world by the signification world. On the contrary it recognizes my thought as an inalienable fact and it eliminates every type of idealism in discovering me as presence to a world.

As counsellors and psychotherapists we might consider Husserl’s phenomenology, as he outlines it here, primarily to be about trying to bracket out our own biases and to be aware of the further biases involved in doing this. This ‘phenomenological epoché’ and ‘parenthesizing’ of the Objective world . . does not leave us confronting nothing. On the contrary when we gain possession of something by it; and what we (or, to speak more precisely, what I, the one who is meditating) acquire by it is my pure living, with all the pure subjective processes making it up, and everything meant in them, purely as meant in them; the universe of “phenomena”.
