    Phenomenology of Eros2012Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Eros manifests itself in multiple ways: as tragic eros and philosophical eros, as love, sexuality, seduction, care, desire, and friendship. Eros both defines us as beings and dislocates our existence. It breaks down our certitudes about selfhood and otherness, familiarity and strangeness. This volume gathers together contributions toward a phenomenological understanding of eros. The first part examines eros in relation to ancient philosophy and religion, the second part examines eros in relation to modern phenomenology. The analyses presented show how the question of eros brings us to the core of philosophy. Questions of time, desire, embodiment, intersubjectivity, and perception are all implicated in the phenomenology of eros.

    Introduction2016In: Phenomenology of Pregnancy / [ed] Nicholas Smith & Jonna Bornemark, Huddinge: Södertörns högskola, 2016, p. 7-14Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This anthology takes its starting point in the conviction that a phenomenologyof pregnancy could play an important role in contemporary thought. Stating this is also an acknowledgment that it doesn’t play such a role—yet. The aim of this anthology is to contribute to making philosophical reflectionon pregnancy a greater part of the discussions to come.

    Phenomenology of Pregnancy2016Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The fundamental and irreducible experience of carrying a child and bringing forth new life from one’s own body is in this anthology subjected to careful analyses that specifically, though not exclusively, draw on female experiences. In this way the crucial role of a phenomenology of pregnancy for contemporary thought is investigated. Exploring the phenomenon of pregnancy not just as a biological process, but also as a problem of lived bodily meaning, the contributions investigate a wide array of experiences that engage the limits of human life, subjectivity, intersubjectivity, and ethics, but also opens important methodological perspectives on the relation transcendental phenomenology and empirical research.

    Madness, Religion, and the Limits of Reason2015Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The idea of a limit of reason, a measure that defines reason and that it must not overstep, has been a constitutive part of philosophy since its beginnings in Greek thought. Placing itself in opposition to the madness of hubris, the excesses of tragedy, and the stories of religion and myth, philosophy expels its others just as much as it thrives on them. It begins and ends at the limit; it is drawn towards its outside, and exists as a perpetual attempt to find a line of demarcation that always ends up passing through its interior.

    The present collection analyzes the phenomenon of limit and excess, through readings that range from tragedy and Greek thought, through early Christianity and the Renaissance, to modern phenomenology and philosophy of language.

    Negotiating evil: an introduction2017In: International Journal of Philosophy and Theology, ISSN 2169-2327, E-ISSN 2169-2335, Vol. 78, no 4-5, p. 329-333Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Evil strikes directly at what we care most deeply about, and attempts to control, predict and even eliminate it often generate new and unforeseen evils. Hence, it is no surprise that philosophers and theologians keep returning to the topic. The following special issue springs from the 21st conference of the European Society for Philosophy of Religion held in Uppsala, Sweden, August 2016.

    Om Gilles Deleuzes filosofiska läsart: Kritiskt skapande läsning genom tecken, begrepp och möte2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Gilles Deleuze once, in a letter, described reading in the following way: “It's like plugging in to an electric circuit.” This powerful statement together with the ”zone of indiscernibility” that readers of Deleuze often experience, as well as the insufficient scholarly engagement with Deleuze’s practice of reading philosophy constitute the starting points to study the metaphysical conditions of Deleuze’s act of reading. The purpose of the dissertation is thus to enquire into what we read when we read philosophy and how reading happens as an event. To further these aims, first, I will study Deleuze’s way of writing philosophy. His search for a “new means of philosophical expression,” is seen as a means to transform what the text is and how characters and concepts function through different textual strategies that are made to speak with a voice of their own in Deleuze’s texts. In this way, I argue, Deleuze changes what philosophy does from writing about its history to enacting or performing it. As Deleuze and Félix Guattari famously stated, what philosophy does in this enactment is, “forming, inventing, and fabricating concepts.” Thus reading philosophy means exposing oneself to this creation of concepts. As such, I argue that it is possible to understand the concept as a sensation of a sign in the encounter that is the act of reading. Before turning to investigate this act of reading, that is, the event of reading, I survey Deleuze’s critique of hermeneutics and interpretation to further explore the context and practices against which he formulates his own reading. In the final chapter I explicate the encounter with the sign, or in the act of reading, the concept, through three moments extracted from the third chapter of Difference and Repetition titled ”The Image of Thought”. In this way I aim to show how the practice of reading philosophy is an event where the textual materiality, the statement, and the concept are encountered as signs, which force the senses of the reader to perceive the sign as a problem. In this intensive encounter the sign-concept is sensed rather than understood: it is a “something” that opposes recognition, which “moves the soul, ‘perplexes’ it”, paving the way for the genesis of a radically new critical and creative thought. This mechanism is key to what can be seen as Deleuze’s art and metaphysics of reading, which, I argue, is a radically different method of relating to texts to how reading is conventionally understood.

    Självet, begäret och etiken hos Judith Butler  och Jessica Benjamin: (O)möjliga möten mellan modern genusteori och psykoanalys2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The gender theory of Judith Butler is based on both philosophical and psychoanalytic notions of the self. Although greatly inspired by both early and contemporary psychoanalytic thinking, Butler has also questioned some of its core notions such as the meaning of gender complementarity and conceptions of desire. In a dialogue in Studies in Gender and Sexuality she discusses these and other theoretical and ethical issues with the influential psychoanalyst and gender theorist Jessica Benjamin. The exchange is a unique example of an attempt at dialogue and theoretical reflection between a prominent contemporary gender theorist and psychoanalyst. It reveals disagreements and theoretical difficulties I will show to be directly attributable to radical differences between Butler's and Benjamin's conceptions of the self. In a direct comparison, the two perspectives on the self seem to be irreconcilable. Only in reference to a third perspective, that of psychoanalyst Donald Winnicott, emerges a potential possibility of congruity. I will describe how Winnicotts conception of the self comprises two irreconcilable aspects, and then suggest that one of them has consistently been the essential focus of Butler's interest and attention, while the other has remained the main focus of Benjamin's. In light of this analysis I will discuss the notion of congruity and mention the potential relevance of Butler's philosophy for an expanded understanding of Winnicotts conception of the self.

    Fenomenologi, ontologi, givenhet: Reduktion och filosofisk metod hos Edmund Husserl och Martin Heidegger2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this thesis I examine how the phenomenological philosophy of Edmund Husserl and Martin Heidegger differ with regard to the phenomenological reduction, and in particular why there is no reduction in Sein und Zeit. I examine in what way philosophy is seen as an overcoming of the naïvete of a ‘natural’ attitude and how this natural attitude is understood, starting with Husserl’s descriptions of the phenomenological reduction, of the natural attitude of our daily lives and of his notion of transcendental subjectivity. By presenting these main aspects, I try to elucidate why, in Husserl’s view, laying the foundation of all knowledge must take form of a phenomenological first philosophy. There is also a short discussion on the problems of communicating the phenomenological reduction in the language of the natural attitude, and why the emphasis on the the negative aspects of the reduction is to some extent rooted in the things themselves. After having outlined the relevant characteristics of Husserl’s phenomenology, I turn to Heidegger’s own phenomenological project and describe the phenomenological method laid forth in Sein und Zeit and his critique of Husserl, mainly in the Prolegomena zur Geschichte des Zeitbegriffs. After that I try to show in what way the analyses in Sein und Zeit function as a corrective to the points of criticism in Prolegomena. I then try to show in what way the phenomenon of Angst plays a similar methodological role to that of the phenomenological reduction in Husserl. Finally, I try to elucidate in what way the concept of In-der-Welt-Sein is a criticism of Husserl’s idea of the transcendental consciousness, and how Heidegger’s project can be seen as an inquire into the conditions for phenomena in general – that is, not only how the transcendent objects are constituted in the transcendental consciousness, as in Husserl, but rather how things in general can present themselves, including the ‘immanent’ acts of the consciousness. The self-givenness of consciousness is thus not seen as the point of departure for phenomenology, but rather a problem that needs to be phenomenologically explained.

    Mannet och egentligheten2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The essay deals with the understanding of the two key concepts from Sein und Zeit (SZ) mentioned in the headline, including a debate on the issue of das Man in Inquiry: an Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy.

    It is noted that reading SZ involves being simultaneously written by the work in a process of reciprocity; this entails a questioning of alleged possession of this or any work, it having been made accessible to the public by its publication.

    Das Man, as a concept for inauthenticity, needs a counterpart for authenticity, which in SZ is provided by Eigentlichkeit, Self-ownership.This comes into existence via “being-towards-death”, where the caring being, as a being of possibilities, encounters its ultimate possibility death which is also the end of possibilities.

    The Inquiry debate, the main contenders of which were Hubert Dreyfus and Frederick Olafson, hinges on the question whether das Man should be understood primarily as “at bottom a deformation of Mitsein” (Olafson) or “the conformity necessary for the institution of collectively intelligible social practices (Dreyfus, in the words of his advocate in the debate, Taylor Carman). Both sides, however, give evidence of misreadings of SZ of a kind that call for an explanation. The proposal is that this could be given in an analysis of such a rhetoric of polemics that transforms SZ into a state of Vorhandenheit when making it an object of investigation by the contenders rather than such a tool for being-changed that is mentioned above.

    The relation between the two aspects of das Man, as oppressive know-all or as forms of established truth for Dasein, remains unsolved, however. At the end of the essay, das Man is understood primarily as established truth. It is argued that it should be seen as involved in a process of change as its immobility must be challenged by the living/dying, a challenge that is being recuperated into das Man in order to re-establish itself as undisputed truth and thereby changing it. This change involves technical developments, including the threat of these to the living.

    Modes of a “complicated form of life”: Expression and human-animal continuity2018In: Wittgenstein and Naturalism / [ed] Kevin M. Cahill, Thomas Raleigh, New York: Routledge, 2018, p. 223-240Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    My aim in this paper is to use the later Wittgenstein to argue against what I call the continuity-view of human and animal expression. Further, I will show that skepticism about animal expression is not the only alternative to the continuity-view. The paper has three sections. In the first section, I articulate the central commitments of the continuity-view: 1) There is a significant overlap in expressive behavior between humans and animals 2) Adding new expressive repertoire to include linguistic expression does not fundamentally alter the entire spectrum of expressive behavior. In the second section, I develop some passages in Wittgenstein into an argument against those commitments. Reflections on the temporal dimension of expressions and the interplay between non-verbal and verbal expression are central to this argument. In the third and more tentative section, I turn to how to avoid skepticism about animal expression, specifically in the form of claiming that the word “expression” is ambiguous. I discuss two ways of preserving conceptual unity while avoiding the continuity-view: categorial generality (which I find in John McDowell’s view on the human-animal relation) and family resemblance (which I associate with Wittgenstein).

    What is it to Despychologize Psychology?2017In: European Journal of Philosophy, ISSN 0966-8373, E-ISSN 1468-0378, Vol. 25, no 2, p. 358-375Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this essay, I distinguish two ways of depsychologizing psychology: 'anti-psychologism' and 'non-psychologism'. Both positions are responses to the Fregean sharp distinction between the logical and the psychological. But where anti-psychologism, which I find in John McDowell, attempts to overcome the sharp distinction by arguing that psychological states and their expressions are apt to be articulated into judgments, Stanley Cavell's non-psychologism, a powerful and neglected alternative, wants to overcome the sharp distinction by abandoning judgment as the paradigm expression of thought and communication.

    Édouard Glissants opacitetsbegrepp2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents the concept of opacity as a philosophical concept in Édouard Glissants writing in Le Discours Antillais (1981), Poétique de la Relation (1990) and Philosophie de la Relation. Poésie en étendue. (2009). It shows how opacity can be understood as a form of resistance both on an intersubjective level and on an ontological level. On an intersubjective level opacity is a resistance to being grasped as knowledge, and expressed as each and everyone’s right this becomes an ethics. On an ontological level opacity is a resistance to being assimilated into a dominant discourse, with Clevis Headleys words an ontological self-defense. The paper also explains how opacity is not an opposite to transparency but function in a more equal, integrated and complex relation to transparency. In a reading of Glissant as an advocate for an alternative concept of knowledge formulated as a poetics, opacity is also presented as enabling and supporting this alternative concept of knowledge. Thus the poetic become political constituted by opacity.

    Resaying the Human: Levinas Beyond Humanism and Antihumanism2010Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this reading a notion of the human is developed through an engagement with the work of French philosopher Emanuel Levinas. The argument is that, with the help of Levinas, it is possible for the idea of the human to be understood anew, for the notion to be ‘resaid’. This resaying of the human is performed in a critical appropriation of the philosophical tradition: Levinas’s work is shown not to be a new variation of the complacent ideology of humanism; the idea of the human is instead interpreted to be the bearer of the very movement of critique. This movement is articulated in terms of a transcendence of a discursive ‘economy of violence’. Critique does not establish a permanent position outside of violence, but is a movement that must constantly be renewed.

    Here Levinas is offered as a modern thinker of particular relevance for contemporary discussions surrounding the nature both of the political and of Human Rights. In addition one finds a systematic analysis of the major works of Levinas, unraveling how a notion of the human develops from within his philosophy.

    Levinas’s thought is placed alongside philosophical figures of his time, such as Heidegger, Sartre, Bataille, Lévi-Strauss, Althusser, Foucault and Derrida, as well as more recent political thinkers, for example, Alain Badiou, Giorgio Agamben and Jacques Rancière.

    Thinking Revolution With and Beyond Levinas2014In: Jewish Thought, Utopia and Revolution / [ed] Elena Namli, Jayne Svenungsson, Alana M. Vincent, Amsterdam / New York: Rodopi, 2014, p. 79-93Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents the view on revolution in the writings of French-Jewish philosopher Emmanuel Levinas. Levinas is often thought of as a mainly ethical thinker, cautious regarding the political. Here, the political implication of his thought is emphasised. Levinas, the article argues, is a thinker of the revolution. His thought is also criticized in the article, however, for drawing too severe boundaries between the home and the public sphere.

    Yrkesmänniskan i den kapitaliserade välfärden2019Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Under de senaste decennierna har välfärdssystemet i Sverige genomgått radikala förändringar. Det rör sig om ett system som alltmer styrs enligt en marknads- och bolagslogik, dels genom att delar av välfärden hamnat i privat ägo, och dels genom att offentliga aktörer anpassat sina strukturer efter den privata sektorn.

    En fråga som föranleds av dessa förändringar, och som är den grundfråga som den här antologin rör sig omkring är: Vilka är betingelserna för yrkesmänniskor att handla klokt i den kapitaliserade välfärden? Boken innehåller berättelser och reflektioner från yrkesmänniskor i välfärden, och från akademiker som forskar inom detta område.

    Tingens lydnad och människans väntan: Nödvändighet, nåd, handling och tänkande i Simone Weils filosofi2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This bachelor thesis engages in a quest to understand the concepts of necessity and grace in Simone Weils thinking. The question in play, in which many more questions lie hidden, reads as follows: How does Weil understand the operations of grace in relation to the ”blind necessity” of the natural world, and what are the philosophical implications of this concept of grace? What are, for instance, given her understanding of the world as God’s creation, the metaphysical grounds for a basic human activitiy such as thinking or reflexion? A reading of Simone Weils works on necessity, grace, affliction and attention is contrasted with her thoughts on science, method and truth. The concept of necessity is compared to the one of Spinoza, especially on the subject of how the good or the just relates to the true and the necessary: it shows there are interesting similarities and illuminating differences between the two philosophers’ lines of thought. Here, the concept of attention becomes central to the image: the idea of a cultivated mode of reception of the world and of the Other. Attention is analogously understood as a method of prayer and a cultivated ethical attitude towards other human beings – and an ideal scientific state of mind. In the final chapter of the analytic part of the composition, Weils concept of grace is investigated in regard to concepts of thinking and understanding. Here, Leibniz idea of the divine world and the divine mind plays a concise but important role on the matter of a tentative metaphysical grounding of thinking as such – how this can be thought and how it reflects and deepens Simone Weils metaphysics, especially her understanding of the highest states of insight into the nature of the world as partly a work of divine grace. In the last chapter Walter Benjamins vision of the coming philosophy as a consolidation between Immanuel Kants transcendental philosophy and religious experience – and religious thought – show the way for further investigation into the field, a field that the thesis has outlined at the same time as it has attempted to answer some specific questions that seems to be the most urgent ones.

    To Begin Something New

    A Conceptual Analysis of Hannah Arendt’s Space of Appearance

    This essay is about Hannah Arendt’s political philosophy and uses her book, The Human Condition, as its main point of reference. Specifically it’s Arendt’s theory of political action and how it manifests in the world that is going to be explored. The method of the essay is a conceptual analysis and the aim is to answer the following question: “What is ‘the space of appearance?’” The purpose of this essay is twofold. Firstly, to expand on Arendt’s political philosophy. Secondly, it is an attempt to map Arendt's insights into the political turmoil of her time on to ours. To - through Arendt’s writing - find the tools to make clear what often seems cryptic.

    One of the core ideas that this essay depends on is a reading of The Human Condition through the lens of Arendt’s doctoral thesis, Love and Saint Augustine. Here she describes the concept of love in the work of the Christian philosopher, Saint Augustine of Hippo, as desire of something good. In this essay I then use this understanding of “love as desire” to describe why humans act politically.

    The essay revolves around Arendt’s notion that political action depends on the plurality of man and that a multitude of people acting together within “the space of appearance” creates the processes of unfolding events which constitute human history. The ability to create and reshape history is seen by Arendt as one of the core abilities that make up the human condition. But to create history, a desire for change is needed. By following this argument I come to the conclusion that those with the real potential to use this ability are the ones most oppressed and marginalized by tyrannical regimes or power structures.

    At the end of the essay I conclude with presenting two paramount crises that humanity is currently facing: The crisis of climate change and the large scale obsolescence of labor through automation. Instead of making an attempt to propose a solution to these crises, I argue that a lack of ability or willingness to act politically is what blocks potential possibilities for these challenges to be overcome.

    Fenomenologi, teknik och medialitet2011Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    I uppsatsen "Frågan om tekniken" från 1952 utvecklade Heidegger tanken om hur tekniken i moderniteten omstöpt hela vårt erfarenhets- och handlingsrum. Inom det mångförgrenade fältet teknikens filosofi har den kommit att spela en central och omstridd roll. Den fenomenologiska teknikanalysen har samtidigt kritiserats för att den inte beaktar teknikens samhälleliga funktion och för att den är oförmögen att tänka medialiseringens verklighet. I en serie nyskrivna uppsatser av ledande internationella och svenska forskare inom teknikens filosofi, diskuteras det fenomenologiska arvet, från Husserl över Heidegger till Derrida och Stiegler, med särskild tonvikt på Heidegger. Här upprättas nya linjer mellan kritisk teori, dekonstruktion, fenomenologi och medieteori, som sammantaget ger en unik ingång till samtida teknikfilosofi.

    Increasing De-personalization in Warfare: Levinasian Words on Lethal Autonomous Weapons Systems2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    What are the implications when robots are pre-programmed to “behave ethically”? What are the implications between the other and me when lethal autonomous weapons systems by themselves target and destroy human beings? In this paper, I address these two inter-related questions through the philosophy of Emmanuel Levinas. Firstly (chapter I), I set out to clarify the meaning of “lethal autonomous weapons systems” by discussing concepts such as robot, autonomy, and by outlining the debates regarding these emerging weapons. I also develop my thought on why the philosophy of Levinas is of importance. Secondly (chapter II), I discuss two important Levinasian concepts, namely “substitution” and “thematization”. Finally (chapter III), by using Levinas' concept of substitution, I argue that the issue of making robots “behave ethically”, as some of the on-going debates on LAWS suggest, is missing the deeper question of ethics in the Levinasian sense. LAWS cannot be “ethical” or programmed to “behave ethically”. Ethics is already “there”, before the ethical behaviour, and situated in and constitutive of my very subjectivity as “for-the-other”. In light of this and together with Levinas’ understanding of thematization, I further argue that through the very conception of lethal autonomous weapons systems the ethical encounter becomes a denial, implying violence and a problematic dehumanization already at work, both towards the "I" and the other.

    The naked king: on the desire to replace philosophy with Conceptual art during the years 1966-1972 and the aesthetic response by Theodor W. Adorno, Umberto Eco and Jacques Rancière2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this essay is to investigate the reconfiguration and, to some extent, the total deconstruction of the aesthetic field, such as we have know it since Baumgarten, that is promoted by Conceptual art. It is our intention to show the philosophical importance and the theoretical implications of the questions raised by this artistic movement, which somehow instigated the tumultuous debate directed to overwhelm much of the art world from the late 1960's onward.

    We believe that the very core of Conceptual art is philosophical and in this respect our programme is to investigate how Conceptual art not only challenges the viewer with traditional aesthetic concepts, but also with the very means used by philosophy to analyse art.

    This essay aims therefore to be an analysis of the philosophy of Conceptual art, which we put in relation to the aesthetic investigations of three philosophers - TheodorWiesengrundAdorno, Umberto Eco and Jacques Rancière.

    The ambition is to shed theoretical light on an artistic movement certainly scantly considered within the philosophical domain, while it indicates itself as the contingent successor to philosophy.

    Att se det negativa i ansiktet, och dröja kvar vid det: Ekstas och ansvar hos Judith Butler2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay argues that the ethical theory of ”failure” Judith Butler is proposing in her later work, specifically in Giving an Account of Oneself, is based on an idea of the subject as ”ec-static” or outside of itself. The idea of the ecstatic subject is formulated already in Butlers dissertation on Hegel, later to be published as Subjects of Desire. This essay sets out to study how this formulation is first articulated in Subjects of Desire and then further developed to ground the ethical project of Giving an Account of Oneself. By these means, the aim is to explore what implications the subject conceived as ecstatic might have for Butlers ethics of "failure", particularly with regards to the notion of responsibility.

    The first part explicates three aspects of the ecstatic figure as it unfolds in Butlers reading of Hegel in Subjects of Desire: the ecstacy of rethorics, desire and recognition. In an interplay between these aspects the quest for self-identity is revealed as being constantly thwarted by a principle of negativity. Instead, the ecstatic subject finds itself constituted by alterity and thereby also funda- mentally dependent on the recognition by others. Turning in the second part to Giving an Account of Oneself, this ecstatic moment is extended to involve the very conditions of recognition. As a result, and in tandem with a radicalized understanding of performativity and relationality, the ecsta- tic subject is rendered partially opaque to itself. This means that every effort to give an adequate account of oneself will necessarily ”fail”. However, according to Butler, what makes us ”fail” is also what binds us together. The third and final part of the essay discuss what this ethical theory of ”failure” means to the notion of responsibility and how it derives from the conception of the subject as ecstatic. Departing from Catherine Mills's and Hannah Stark's critical readings, Butler's ethical proposal to acknowledge this "failure" and to abide by the limits of self-knowledge is examined in relation to representation, difference and identity. In conclusion Butler's notion of ethical re- sponsibilty is found to linger on the risky line between an open avowing of our unknowingness and a demand to recognize what or who is left out from every act of knowing.

    Meningens vara: En undersökning av meningsbegreppet i Heideggers Vara och Tid2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay examines the concept of meaning in Sein und Zeit. By identifying a paradox in the question constituting the outset of Heidegger’s ontology, i.e. the question of the meaning of Being, the need of a clarification of the concept of meaning unfolds. According to Heidegger, namely, we have been asking the question of Being without even knowing what we mean; we have forgotten to ask the question of the meaning of Being. At the same time, since the actual question of Being necessarily is a question of the meaning of Being, i.e. since we, as human beings and as the sole origin of the question of Being, necessarily mean something with the questions we ask, we have been asking exactly the question we have forgotten to ask. What then, I ask, is this element, that we have been asking for but forgotten to address? What is meaning? Asking this question on the basis of Sein und Zeit, I argue, is necessarily to explore the Being of meaning, since meaning is something found in the constitution of Dasein, the human being, and since the explication of Dasein evolving in Sein und Zeit concerns exactly its Being. After clarifying this question, the study proceeds in three chapters, the first concerning the basic structure of Dasein, the second the understanding, as the knowing of this structure, and the third the explication, in which we finally find the constitutive elements of meaning, i.e. it’s Being. In dialogue with secondary sources, I then aim to discuss the implication of this Being, epistemic as well as political and ethical. Subsequently, I ask what this Being implies for the paradox initially noted.
