Dasein: Being and Time
This work is a triptych in which the abstract images are placed at the ends signifying the limitations of knowledge, and thus of being. The figure, Dasein, is placed between these modes of being. Philosopher Martin Heidegger uses the expression Dasein to refer to the experience of being that is peculiar to human beings. Placed in a pose reminiscent to a Christian icon, Dasein stands in juxtaposition; he is not divine, but conscious of his own awareness and deeply embedded in his own subjective process of creating and understanding himself.
A priori: indicates all knowledge known prior to or independent of experience.
Dasein as Being-in-the-World: Martin Heidegger uses the term Dasein to represent a human as an "inherently social being who already operates with a pre-theoretical grasp of the a priori structures that make possible particular modes of Being" and as being that is pre-disposed to openness toward the world.
A posteriori: indicates all knowledge gained on the basis of experience.
