ABSTRACT. Kamal explains how Heidegger's analysis of human existence (Dasein) opens a new horizon for understanding human reality and how this analysis becomes a total rejection of a Cartesian theory of self-substance. Esfeld writes that, for Heidegger, being-in-the-world includes both being at things in the world and being with other people. Dasein is concerned about its being, and it is being-in-the-world. George notes that Heidegger asks the question what it means to be only in relation to that entity for which its own "to-be" is always an issue, for which its "to-be" is always my "to-be" and for which the characteristic of inquiring and questioning is fundamental. Williams maintains that Heidegger's thought is both philosophical and theological: it precedes and determines the scope of the questioning through which philosophy and theology have their first determinations in discourse, their public realization, representation and foundation.
