To be authentic is to be clear-sighted about the culmination of our life as a being-towards-death. But let us backtrack to the midst of life and being-with-others in the world (Mitsein). The Dasein in its Mitsein denotes capacity, a potentiality of self-projection into a future being. The development of the understanding in this projection is called interpretation. ) The question that Ricoeur poses is whether the mediation of the other is not required on the route from capacity to realization (1992: 181).
This is the distinction between ontology and epistemology. By subordinating epistemology to ontology, Heidegger takes us beyond the conventions of the world, to authentic being. Authentic being is acknowledgement of our rootedness in the world we inhabit. But the search for authenticity becomes, ideologically, a historical regression to a classical Greek heroic era, when fate was looked at boldly in the face. As any Freudian will know, such regression is interpreted as death-wish. The falling-into the inauthenticity of public preoccupations is an indication that we are fleeing the fact that we are finite beings who stand before death.
