The point, quite in keeping with Heidegger’s emphasis on getting clear about oneself, is that the thing to be understood “is” always correlative to the self-understanding of the one who understands it. ” Further, both the one who understands and the thing that is understood “are” historically, that is, in the process of unfolding themselves over time, and neither the one who understands nor the thing understood “are” statically present independently of each other.
