There should be a source for the claim that Heidegger's alleged anti-semitism was rooted in his belief that jews were not whole Daseins. There is much scholarship on the issue of Heidegger's links to the Nazi party and whether or not he was truly anti-semitic. The wording damages the NPOV of this page.--Sam 04:42, 1 August 2006 (UTC)


  • Can't understand why the being-for-itself article was deleted. Can't make sense of that. Anyway I've added in some basics about Sartrean Being-in-itself. Without getting over the top with terminology. I'll grammaticalise it a bit tomorrow. Sludgehaichoi 22:38, 28 December 2006 (UTC)
  • This article is completely wrong. Hegel (nineteenth century) develops the concept of "being-in-itself (Ansichsein)." Someone needs to rewrite this altogether, or the article needs to be discarded, and readers can go to philosophers' pages, where their subjects are already elaborated.
