Where does the text fit into being and time as a whole? Page 121, he is describing the worldhood-of the-world “The worldhood of the world is ; pg 121 : the Being of the ontical condition which makes it possible for entities within-the-world to be discovered at all” proper account of our experience of the world requires a completely different type of analysis. In order to understand our world, then, it is important to begin with a phenominological, this is, descriptive- interpretive account of our interaction with the world that preserves the original and distinctive character of this interaction.

With-which system of relations (verweisungszusammenhang) functional concepts Within-the-world uses the terms to make phenomenologically distinct Heidegger is aiming to give an account of this specific comportment of Dasein towards Being-in-the- world.
