HEIDEGGER: TRUTH IN THE METAPHYSICS OF ONTOLOGICAL PHENOMENON OF DASEIN: THE SOCIAL AND POLITICAL BEING

Eugene Anowa

Abstract


Since the inception of this world man has been constantly trying to know the truth. This “knowing” is philosophy. It is philosophy, which has interpreted man and his activity in general. Human life cannot properly be understood without Philosophy for the good of the body is as important as the good of the mind. Conception of life originates from philosophy. Philosophy gives self-consciousness and develops a spirit of enquiry after truth. Heidegger using his phemenological method draws attention to salient features of reality and awakens us to the pattern of truth which has been  for long ignored from antiquity; the ontological truth. This philosophical work will submit that truth cannot take place in the realm of ontology for that will make truth to be highly subjective and lacks the objectivity that is imperative for social and political interaction. . Keywords: Conception of life, Self-consciousness, Ontology, Ontico, Truth, Social and Political
