The article provides an overview of the argument in Robert Scharff's pap= "Displacing epistemology: Being in the midst of technoscientific practic= (Scharff 2011), focusing on his central objective, to articulate a hidde= ground of the current controversies in the philosophy of science and tech= logy studies, between objectivism and constructivism, through a deeper co= rontation with Heidegger's legacy. The commentary addresses two aspects o= Scharffs argument that deserve to be developed further, namely how it bot= criticizes and cultivates itself an ideal of the meta-knower, and how the= dea of thinking from the perspective of life in Dilthey's sense can be cr= ically reflected through Heidegger's later criticism. By rehearsing Heide= er's understanding of truth as aletheia, and also his gradually increased= riticism of the very concept of life, the commentary tries to show how Sc= rff's intervention can in fact be strengthened against possible criticism.
