THE EVALUATION OF HEIDEGGER’S ONTOLOGICAL DECONSTRUCTION

ABSTRACT

The question of being which is very ambiguous in its application and roll leads the field of metaphysics into some unclear grounds. Metaphysics appears so transcendental and dogmatic that the issues that surround it appear very confusing. Heidegger in the 20th century believes strongly that the problem here is not just with the discipline but with the way it has been handled over the years by the metaphysicians. He accused these predecessors of the forgetfulness of being which has so far led to the problem of metaphysics. This forgetful of being is to be tackled when one studies being in relation to time. This work evaluates Heidegger’s position with an objective of seeing how realistic his position is and how successfully this idea is going to impact on metaphysics.
