Abstract (summary)

This dissertation is to engage with Heidegger's thought of human finitude and thrownness. Heidegger's understanding of the unconcealment of being suggests the possibility of turning the end of metaphysics in which a human being is reduced to a mere object. Heidegger provides the insight that the forgetting of being in the technological era is the mode of being which unconceals its concealment in the appearing of a human being as such. The essence of a human being is offered by the relation of difference in which he makes himself at home, thus he is the exiled being thrown from his ownmost essence, which pushes him to construct who and what he is on earth as a bodily being.
