Example text

More important, such a reading avoids saddling Heidegger with an answer to a question there is no reason to suppose has been endowed with a definite sense. This interpretation has the virtue of making clearer why Heidegger is interested in authenticity in the first place: perhaps surprisingly, his interest in that notion is precisely Nietzsche’s. To see that this is so, let us begin with an alternative interpretation of Heidegger’s account of authenticity in Being and Time. 39 The Significance of Authenticity II An authentic individual, it is frequently suggested, is someone whose way of living expresses an acknowledgment of the “groundlessness” of the sense she makes; an inauthentic individual, on the other hand, is someone who “flees” in the face of this groundlessness.

What I hope to have shown is that inauthenticity is at once intelligible and yet contingent, since it flows not from any motivated act, but from a merely imperfect effort to resist the force of falling. 2 The Significance of Authenticity Randall Havas In the second essay of On the Genealogy of Morals, Nietzsche suggests that two conditions must be satisfied for there to be meaning and understanding in the sense that concerns him—for there to be what he calls “the right to make promises”. 1 Second, the individual must take responsibility for what he or she says and does; he must, in other words, be responsive to the norms in terms of which his activity has the significance it does.

This constantly being torn away from authenticity, yet always feigning it, along with being dragged into das Man, characterizes the agitation of falling as spiraling (Wirbel ). (SZ, 178) Like being closed off and concealed, then, “It is part of Dasein’s facticity that, as long as it is what it is, it remains in the throw (im Wurf ) and is whirled (hineingewirbelt) into the inauthenticity of das Man” (SZ, 179). Indeed, “Being closed off (Verschlossenheit) and being concealed are part of Dasein’s facticity” (SZ, 222).
