meaning of being

“All ontology, no matter how rich and firmly compacted a system of categories it has at its disposal, remains basically blind to and a perversion of its ownmost aim, until it adequately clarifies the meaning of being and understands this clarification as its fundamental task.”

Martin Heidegger, Being and Time

“This would be a reproduction of my doctrine, if “clarified” meant constitutively-phenomenologically clarified.”

Edmund Husserl, Psychological and Transcendental Phenomenology and the Confrontation with Heidegger 1927-1931, p. 281
