letting one’s ownmost self act upon itself from out of itself qua being-guilty

“[Wanting-to-have-a-conscience means] letting one’s ownmost self act upon itself from out of itself qua being-guilty; phenomenally speaking, this is Dasein’s authentic ability-to-be evidencing itself in Dasein. We now have to lay out its eksistential structure. This is the only way to get to the basic structure of the authenticity of Dasein’s eksistence as disclosed in Dasein itself.”

Martin Heidegger, Being and Time

Edmund Husserl, Psychological and Transcendental Phenomenology and the Confrontation with Heidegger 1927-1931, p.369
