The author's dialogue with Heidegger leads to the positing of his thesis: Heidegger's
Sein und Zeit and his
Vom Wesen des Grundes (The Essence of Reason) contain a philosophical anthropology whose essential feature is the rehabilitation of the senses as means of knowing. Indeed, Heidegger's method would then lead to the same sort of conceptualization he himself condemns, if Dasein does not
see the meanings of entities in the concrete. Such seeing is the seeing of the
degrees of meaning of an individual entity. Meaning then becomes the measure of values manifested in the
World's Worlding. The author calls this turning of Heidegger to the ontological realm for the standard of values, rather than to the ontic realm of science, the
Third Copernican Revolution.
