Is it not that, ultimately, philosophy AS SUCH begins with Kant, with his transcendental turn? Is it not that the entire previous philosophy can be understood properly (not as the simple description of the “entire universe,” of the totality of beings, but as the description of the horizon within which entities disclose themselves to a finite human being) only if read “anachronistically,” from the standpoint opened up by Kant? Is it not that it was Kant who also opened up the field within which Heidegger himself was able to formulate the notion of Dasein as the place in which beings appear within a historically determined/destined horizon of meaning?
