On Heidegger on Kant

― Kim, Seong Woo ―

Heidegger raises the problem of 'Being and Time' through analyses of the human existence having a understanding of Being in order to investigate the truth of Being and the time as the horizon of openness of Being. His fundamental ontology and the destruction of the history of metaphysics are the double tasks of the question of Being. they are both the grounding of metaphysics and the transformation of traditional metaphysics. For this purpose, he set out the central problem of Kant's Critique of Pure Reason as one of finiteness and transcendence. This famous 'the court of reason' is not the epistemology of mathematical natural sciences nor the metaphysics of the classical meaning. The ultimate concern of Kant is metaphysics; the question of how metaphysics as a science is possible to a human. As a result, the chief purpose of the main book by kant is a grounding of metaphysic. After all, It results in the transcendental imagination. Through his interpretation of Kant, he regards the main problem of Kant, one of finiteness and transcendence as one of 'Being and time', his chief one. Therefore, Heidegger's interpretation of Kant is a historical reiteration of his fundamental ontology and has a intent to discover the his Sache he did unconsciously has and never say of.
