As well as authentic. 'But death is, as pertaining to Dasein, only in an existentiell being towards death' (BT, 234). ] Dasein does not first die, or does not really die at all, with and in die experience of factical demise' (BT, 247). What matters is not physical demise, but one's attitude to one's death during life. The 'authentic' attitude is 'running ahead [Vorlaufen]': this 'reveals to Dasein its lostness in the They-self [Man-selbst] and confronts it with the possibility - not primarily supported by concernful solicitude - of being itself, but itself in impassioned freedom towards death [Freiheit zum Tode], released from the illusions of the They, factical, certain of itself and anxious [sich ängstenden]' (BT, 266).

Revives the original meaning of Existenz- 'Ex-sistenz, what steps forth from itself and manifests itself in stepping forth' (S, 129/107). e. the existing entity) steps forth. This notion of existence is taken over by Kierkegaard, who restricts it to man, the only being ensnared in the 'contradiction of temporality and eternity' (Nil, 475/ep, 70). Hegel's system, Kierkegaard argued, propounds 'eternal' truths. But one cannot live in a system; it gives no guidance on the decisions that life, even the philosopher's life, requires.

Being' Heidegger insists, 'is no entity, no thing and no thingly property, nothing PRESENT-ATHAND' (XXIX, 470; cf. LXV, 286). Being is often contrasted not with beings, but with becoming (Plato, Nietzsche), appearance, thinking and values or the 'ought'. The contrasts tend to restrict the range of being to what is constandy PRESENT, in constrast to the fleeting, illusory or unrealised (IM, 154/169). This is no accident; it is an essential feature of being itself that it lends itself to precisely these contrasts.
