Newton's laws, the principle of contradiction, any truth whatsoever--these are true only as long as Da-sein is; and only as long as Da-sein is. Before there was any Da-sein, there was no truth; nor will there be any after Da-sein is no more. For in such a case, truth as uncoveredness... cannot be. Before Newton's laws were discovered, they were not 'true.' (SZ, 269)
when i get sad i look for heidegger. sometimes there are puns, sometimes warmhearted laughter, sometimes horror. sometimes it sounds like someone talking dirty and sometimes it is trash talk.
