Authentic Grasp of Being

Martin Heidegger, a German philosopher, defines authenticity as the antithesis of inauthenticity, outlined by the forms of existentialism.

The most important thing in an authentic Dasein (existence) is that it is focused on the possibility of being (Sein), on the being, which is present here. Availability of Sein is inherent in Dasein, but the Dasein in its existence can address Sein in two ways. It can escape from it, dismiss it, turn away from it, or focus on something else (on what is here). In such a case, it enters into inauthenticity mode and starts existence through piercing deployment of everyday life, with all its characteristic versions of existentials – curiosity, stampede, gossip, ambiguity, etc.

Authentic Dasein exists in what it is, in what, where being prevails, in what it exists as a being. Authenticity is found where we go from inauthenticity, coping with the endless chatter and curiosity, as well as with conventional wisdom; when we cease to escape from being in the world or in ourselves; when staying in the world, we focus on the being. And through this concentration we carefully go to the point where the being is. When on call abandonment we respond with intense awareness of findability, but do not allow findability to reassure us, cultivating abandonment and its questions. In all these authentic existential things the most important thing is concentration on the being – in all its modalities and combinations. We need to ask it a question about it, and then Dasein will be deployed in accordance with its fundamental and ontological mode.

What Dasein can say about itself, staying in its own authentic mode? It can only say the last two terrible and beautiful words: here and being. Instead of I, instead of world, instead of God, it is necessary to mention only one correct word – being. First, there is being, and then what, who, how, where, when, and why. But this being more often falls, get blurred, and sometimes disappears.

Heidegger talks about who exists in the true Dasein. On the question of who, authentic Dasein responds with self, Selbst. Selbst of the authentic Dasein is its identification with being, Sein. Dasein can be. It can be itself, then it exists, but it may not be by itself, then instead of (Selbst) acts das Man and other inauthentic existentials.

You can go to the authentic Dasein through denial of das Man, through decisive and deliberate turn away from everyday life, but this turn will be valid only if it will be done by Dasein itself, through reliance on the being that exists in it and talks through it.
