Unformatted text preview: Personality Psych EXAM 2 STUDY GUIDE Dasein – • Basically means PEOPLE. • What is Dasein? 1. A being that poses the question of Being 2. A being that mistakes itself for that which it is not, that sees itself in the reflected light of things. Being with the World – • Dasein is a being-in-the-world, an unbroken unity undercutting the traditional division between subject and object, mind and external reality, inner and outer belonging to western civilization. The world is part of Dasein indissociable – there is no isolated “I” or worldless subject that floats somewhere, only then to find a world – Dasein – you and I – are always already enworlded. (Not a matter of one thing spatially inside another). • Basically, The world is the irreducible context of experience that makes it possible for anything to be encountered, perceived, interpreted. • Being in the world is the way we cannot separate ourselves from having a relationship with the world.

Falling - • Falling means leaving one’s own unique identity and fitting in the social role (doing what we’re expected to do) – it’s to “deteriorate” to “degenerate” – this is something most of us do. • When you conform, you fall away from your true self (identify with “the one”) Thrownness – • We always find ourselves in certain situations that we are thrown into, i.e., born as a male or female, born in a certain time period; we have no control over it. Dasein as “Thrown Projection,” – • It assigns meaning, gives a design or order of pattern to its factical situatedness. • It is how we interpret our ideas/circumstances to make them meaningful to ourselves. Heidegger’s Nazi involvement – • Heidegger was from a very religious Catholic background, but pulled away because of its strict rules. • He “fell” into the ways of the Nazi; then when he resigned from the Nazi, he was silent about his involvement for 33 years....
