Heidegger’s ontic relatedness: Pros ti and Mitsein

Laura Candiotto

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Relational structure is a primitive notion of Heidegger’s Dasein. By analyzing the concept of pros-ti as it emerges from the Heidegger’s 1924 course dedicated to Plato’s Sophist, I outline the Platonic and Aristotelic roots of Heideggerian Mitsein. Arguably the Mitsein makes
explicit the instances of the pros ti — in other words, the instances of Aristotle’s concept of relatedness/intentionality that Heidegger ascribes to Plato’s heteron — but giving them
an existential value, having Heidegger pursued the shift from realism to phenomenologyexistentialism. The article concludes by emphasizing the relevance of these themes for social ontology.
