show the entity the way it usually and generally is, in its average everydayness

/Text in SZ:/

“Rather, the kind of access and the kind of interpretation must be chosen in such a way that this entity can show itself in itself and from itself. What is more, the approach should show the entity the way it usually and generally is, in its average everydayness.”

Martin Heidegger, Being and Time

/Husserl underlines:/

“average everydayness

/In the left margin, the first sentence; the rest continues at the bottom of the page:/

“In my sense, this is the way to an intentional psychology of the personality in the broadest sense, starting from personal life in the world: a founding personal type.

I have placed, over against each other, natural apprehension of the world in natural worldly life (or, this worldly life itself) and philosophical, transcendental apprehension of the world – hence a life which is not a natural immersion in a naively pre-accepted world nor a matter of taking-oneself-in-naïve-acceptance as a human being, but which is the idea of a philosophical life determined by philosophy.”

Edmund Husserl, Psychological and Transcendental Phenomenology and the Confrontation with Heidegger 1927-1931, p. 287.
