Heidegger’s Contribution to Phenogenology and Existentialist Ontology

Martin O. Onwuegbusi

Discipline: Philosophy, Social Science



This paper attempts to show that Heidegger adopts phenomenology to the needs of his quest for the problematic of the Being–question, most significantly exhibited the potentialities of Husserl’s method, as relevant not only for laying open the realm of consciousness, but also as a means of disclosing Being in all its facticity and historicality. It lays bare the fact that the whole of Being and Time is a demonstration of phenomenology at work and that is a significant contribution of Martin Heidegger to Existentialist ontology.
