Mit Werten in der Politik verhält es sich wie mit vielen Dingen im Leben: Erst wenn sie nicht mehr da sind, wird deutlich, wie sehr sie fehlen. Der Bezug auf Werte wird in der politischen Debatte nicht immer explizit gemacht, selten werden politische Entscheidungen dezidiert mit ihnen begründet. Wenn sie aber auch implizit fehlen, wenn sie nicht mehr Leitfaden für das politische Handeln sind, dann verliert Politik ihre Substanz und ihre orientierende Kraft.

64 Referring to Husserl’s concept of self in Ideas II, James Drummond observes: The individual, personal being, is constituted in those dependencies on intersubjective experiential life which involve communicative experience, for it is in those acts that the individual sets himself or herself off against those other subjects, all of whom together form a social association. 65 In contradistinction to Heidegger’s philosophy, Husserl does not think that the individual being is lost in its relation with others; rather, Husserl recognizes the interconnectedness of self and other and the world they create together.

Recall, 22 O Chapter Two however, that Heidegger wants to maintain that primordially, as authentic, Da-sein does genuinely understand others. Only as authentic, then, can this being-with be genuine, originary and radical. The problem in understanding what authentic being-with-others means arises due to the stress Heidegger places on the solitary nature of authentic Da-sein. Authenticity as authentic being-toward-death remains for the most part utterly non-relational and Da-sein’s ownmost possibility, and clearly a concept grounded in the temporal rather than the spatial: Being toward it discloses to Da-sein its ownmost potentiality-of-being in which it is concerned about the being of Da-sein absolutely.
