Personality Psychology Final Exam Review Sheet How does Heidegger’s philosophy relate to the Newtonian-Galilean Weltanschauung?- Heidegger’s philosophy’s good points gets attacked for his life’s bad points: ad hominem argument - “toward man” --> aka criticizing Heidegger’s philosophy by attacking his involvement with the Nazis. Ad Hominem argument: attacking an argument based on qualities of the person who argues it. Appointing toward the man. Ex. Atwood kicks his dog, all his work would be worthless. It is against the NGW and operates outside of Western Thought. His philosophy is the characteristics of human way of being from other things, and it influenced human science and was the antithesis of the NGW. Heidegger says we are always all related to the world and each other. Ad hominem argument isn’t logically sound because a person can be racist and still have good ideas. It isn’t logical but it’s powerful. Stuff on Heidegger – Smart man, but George would never want to be his friend The concept in Heidegger of “being-with”- In Dasein’s theory it is our relation to others that shows a cyclical structure of falling into the they-self, we than rise out of it into authenticity until falling back into they they-self again. Dasein is a being - with - not an existing alongside in space - an irreducible relationality - it relates to other Daseins; Dasein ceasing to be a being - with would cease to be Dasein.

Third we rise up into the "authenticity" (sort of a true self) but many people do not get here or finally they "fall" back into the they self.they self rising authenticity>falling>back to the they self. It is a pattern like this The concept in Heidegger of “falling”- We fall into the they-self (doing what “they” want us to do; a consciousness of others and their views).

Falling is our tendency to fall in line with what society wants us to be. Heidegger says that for the most part we fall in line with what society wants us to do.
