Philosophy is universal phenomenological ontology growing out of a hermeneutics of Dasein

“Ontology and phenomenology are not two different disciplines that, along with others, belong to philosophy. The two terms characterize philosophy itself according to [respectively] its object and its way of treating [that object]. Philosophy is universal phenomenological ontology growing out of a hermeneutics of Dasein, and this hermeneutics, as an analysis of eksistence, has tied the Ariadne’s Thread of all philosophical questioning to the place from which that questioning arises and to which it returns.”

Martin Heidegger, Being and Time
