78 Heidegger is concerned with a wakeful self-care of this kind. He finds a model for it not in Plato’s dialogues, however, but rather in Aristotle, more precisely, in the idea of a practical form of reason (ϕρ¬νησις). ”79 Heidegger nevertheless finds this idea of a “readiness to deal with,” or, the ability to conduct oneself toward what one is and is not, to be only insufficiently realized in Aristotle. Aristotle characterizes human life only “formally”80 and negatively by determining it as something that can also be otherwise,81 and in this way sets it apart from what is manufactured [das Fertige], completed.
Heidegger understands ϕρ¬νησις not, like Aristotle himself, as a deliberation concerned with respective possibilities of action [handeln], but rather solely as the openness of the situation of action itself. ” Even in the Nicomachean Ethics analysis, an immediate grasping lies in ϕρ¬νησις, which Aristotle calls “perception,” α≥σθησις; it is a perception that is to be ~ς), which is concerned distinguished from the proper function of reason (νου 98 with principles (™ρχαι) of knowing. The perception in play in practical reason is concerned not with the unchangeable, but, rather, with each respective case, with what is respectively to be done (πραχτ¬ν99) in each case.
Wahrheit und Methode is an attempt to do precisely this. Gadamer’s recourse to Heidegger is not to be taken as a simple continuity, however. It is in the interest of his own solution that Gadamer reinterprets Heidegger’s hermeneutical approach, even if this may not be apparent on first glance. In what Gadamer writes about Heidegger in Wahrheit und Methode there is no indication of a debate, and not at all any explicit divergence. Gadamer takes up his teacher’s thought and places himself completely within the context of that thought in his own project of philosophical hermeneutics.
