LOPARIC, Zeljko. Metaphysics and the process of objetification. Nat. hum. [online]. 2008, vol.10, n.2, pp.9-43. ISSN 1517-2430.

After demonstrating that the program of Being and Time includes the deconstruction of metaphysics, science, and of all the processes of objectification (point of view, representation, etc.), the text presents the difficulties of the first Heidegger in reconstructing the structures of objectivity from the occurrence of the being there of man. Following, the discussion deals with some of the motives, among them discussions with representatives of contemporary science, in particular with Heisenberg, by means of which Heidegger abandoned the reconstruction daseino of objectification and returned to determine the essence of this phenomenon, the occurrence of the truth of being. Finally, the text shows that Heidegger admitted the difficulties of thinking of all the essential elements of objectification as decadence of the truth of being.

Keywords : Heidegger; metaphysics; science; technique; objectification.
