Dasein as Attunement, and Social Inquiry

Kenneth Liberman
University of Oregon, U.S.A.


Abstract
"References to phenomenology are often made, but never quite fully explored and exploited. Collateral aspects are mentioned, such transparency, ready-to-handedness and so on. Yet nobody quotes Section 29 of Being and Time, where Heidegger (1962, pp. 172 – 182) introduces the notion of situatedness (Befinlichkeit), contrasting it with the privileged role attributed then (and now) to understanding, cognition and the purely mental. Lack of proper references to phenomenology while using its ascendance may also induce the reader not versed in philosophy to believe that what these authors say about situatedness is indeed all that phenomenology has had to say on the subject." From Claudio Ciborra, "Getting to the Heart of the Situation,"(2006: pp. 5-6).
