Re: A Question about "On the Essence of Truth" (fwd)


Brad has suggested to me in a private post that the passage must mean
that the thing comports itself toward Dasein, though it cannot be
revealed without the corresponding proposition, which manifests the
thing. (I hope I am getting that right, Brad.) This response seems a
little more determinative than yours below, but I believe it does not
contradict your position. Am I right in thinking this?
