New Criticals

But it is Time that Being becomes, it is in Time that each of us, (Heidegger’s word for this is Dasein) must choose the life we live. In his 8-part series on Being and Time from the Guardian, Simon Critchley writes:

The main conclusion of Heidegger’s work is that being is time. Not the space-time continuum of the physicists, but the existential continuum of an “I” (Dasein) thrown into existence, pulled by its past, and projecting into its future.
