This understanding discloses the possibilities of its Being and regulates them. Its own past—and that always means that of its "generation"—does not follow after Dasein but rather always goes already ahead of it. °Heidegger's word Destruktion does not mean "destruction" in the usual sense, which the German word Zerstorung expresses. /ED. 65 BASIC WRITINGS Being and Time This elemental historicity of Dasein can remain concealed from it. But it can also be discovered in a certain way and be properly cultivated.

Similarly, the positive result of Kant's Critique of Pure Reason consists in its beginning to work out what belongs to any nature whatsoever, and not in a "theory" of knowledge. His transcendental logic is an a priori logic of the realm of Being called nature. But such inquiry—ontology taken in its broadest sense without reference to specific ontological directions and tendencies—itself still needs a guideline. It is true that ontological inquiry is more original than the ontic inquiry of the positive sciences.

BASIC WRITINGS Being and Time The analysis of Dasein thus understood is wholly oriented toward the guiding task of working out the question of Being. Its limits are thereby determined. It cannot hope to provide a complete ontology of Dasein, which of course must be supplied if something like a "philosophical" anthropology is to rest on a philosophically adequate basis. With a view to a possible anthropology or its ontological foundation, the following interpretation will provide only a few "parts," although not unessential ones.
