Sein’ also entails several varying meanings: to be, being, existence and reality. Dasein is commonly translated as ‘Being-there’, which will be used hitherto. The Subject and Time 31 Da-sein is a being that does not simply occur among other beings. Rather it is ontically distinguished by the fact that in its being this being is concerned about its very being (Heidegger, 1982, p. 10). Dasein’s very existence already carries a relation to its own being. This relation is already manifest on the ontic level, as Dasein’s relation to its own being is a characteristic of its ontological structure.

The Subject and Time 23 perceives the object (whether it is external or internal). Consciousness judges intuitive data by observing it through the prism of its a priori concepts. By abstracting the sensory aspects of each object-related experience and removing the contents of perception, Kant claims that he has been able to attain the pure a priori structure of intuition (which is free of any empirical content whatsoever). In other words, what remains after we have removed everything related to the senses and cogitation is, in fact, pure intuition.

According to them, we require a mental or intentional synthesis in order to perceive the world around us as we do. This means that perception, as an event, is dependent upon the activities of consciousness. When Heidegger describes our knowledge of the things around us, his examples presuppose Dasein’s involvement in his environment. As far as Heidegger is concerned, our perception is not a bundle of perspectives from which synthesis creates a unified object, nor are we matching objects with the activities appropriate to their physical properties.
