oa Indo-Pacific Journal of Phenomenology - "Higher than actuality" - the possibility of phenomenology in Heidegger

Volume 5 Number 2
  • ISSN : 1445-7377



This paper proceeds from a schematic analysis of Heidegger's notion of 'possibility' to consider the methodological significance of Heidegger's conception of what is essential in phenomenology as inhering not "in its actuality as a philosophical 'movement'", but in the understanding of phenomenology "as a possibility". In conclusion, the paper points to the efficacy of possibility and its mode of fulfillment as radically different from the actualization of latent potentiality.
