Martin Heidegger on Historism - Dictionary of Arguments

Gadamer I 264
Historism/Heidegger/Gadamer: Understanding (...) is the original form of Dasein, the "being-in-the-world" (...). By reawakening the question of being and thus surpassing the previous metaphysics in its entirety - and not only its culmination in the Cartesianism of modern science and transcendental philosophy - Heidegger gained a fundamentally new position in relation to the aporias of historicism.
HeideggerVsDroysen/HeideggerVsDilthey: The concept of understanding is no longer a methodological concept, as in Droysen. Neither is understanding, as in Dilthey's attempt at a hermeneutical foundation of the humanities, an inverse operation that follows the course of life towards ideality. Understanding is the original character of being of human life itself.
