Le problème de la vérité dans Etre et Temps de Heidegger


The Problem of Truth in Heidegger’s Being and Time

The aim of the present paper is to analyse the way in which Heidegger’s work Being and Time is based on the relationship between four concepts with methodological function: phenomenon, logos, interpretation (Auslegung), and truth. This relationship describes the methodological code of the Heideggerian analysis: the definition of the phenomenality, the identification of the only possible phenomenon (being) that satisfy the phenomenological definition and the drafting of the way of access to being. Truth as disclosedness (Erschlossenheit) belongs to the constitution of being of Dasein and it is not primordially a determination of the statements. Dasein is at the same time “in untruth” because the falling prey (Verfallen) belongs equiprimordially to its constitution. In the last part of the paper we identify the main changes of the concept of truth and of the meaning of phenomenality after the Heideggerian Kehre.
