According to Heidegger, our essential character is our existence which is fundamentally characterized by our being-in-the-world, and the term “the world” in the compound expression only belongs to our human beings because it is co-originally set up with an understanding of being of entities within the world. In Heidegger’s words: “What can be meant by describing ‘the world’ as a phenomenon It means to let us see what shows itself in ‘entities’ within the world” (BT, 91; italics added).As far as what has been made clear about an understanding, we know that an understanding is the first ray of light which arises in a relational network to illumine a human being who understands a world, and we also know that the human being who understands exists in his basic state of being-in-the-world.
