How can we complete an investigation while the very subject under scrutiny is transparent and shrouded in darkness? Philosophy, which devotes its efforts to the investigation of being, must rise up to this kind of challenge. 7 Therefore, philosophy has to find a way for us to comprehend the specific mode in which this concept is always already inherent in any understanding of a particular being. Therefore, our inquiry should focus on the search for the unique manner in which beings appear, that is, already revealing themselves in the light of being.
Kantian thought sees the subject (the “I thinkˮ) as an abstract being, uninvolved in the world and incapable either of change or of displaying any individual properties. For Kant, the consciousness of the self - that is, consciousness of the self’s consciousness of itself - is completely unrelated to its self-experience; is it not a relation which the self could experience or encounter in any way through a process of self-discovery. In fact, Kant prohibits the pure I from any manner of change, decreeing it timeless.
This relation, which exceeds mere cognition or epistemology, transforms entities from mere objects to objects characterized first and foremost as entities which Dasein takes care of. For instance, we could consider a telephone placed on a desk as present-at-hand, as an independent object possessing nothing but physical properties. However, in average everyday experience, while showing itself as ready-to-hand through care, the telephone appears not as an object – to which we can join the qualities of ringing, having a dial etc.
