I was reading Heidegger's Basic Concepts and came across the following quote:
"the casting-toward of being and the casting away of being are equally essential" (P. 75)
I do understand that only when we remain in relation to a certain thing, we can experience the absence of that thing. I was wondering however why he thinks this relationship is equally essential. And besides, I don't quite understand what he means by "the casting-toward of being and the casting away of being" Furthermore, he also mentions:
"After all, what can disturb us about the fact that being casts itself toward us and we immediately cast it away. even though we lay claim to it?"
What exactly does he mean by this question?
