Existential Ontology of M. Heidegger in Linguistic „Between“ Swings

This article reveals the difference between Heidegger‘s existential ontology and the theory of Being of Lithuanian philosopher A. Šliogeris. the author discloses a different treatment of the relationship between language and Being. it highlights that A. Šliogeris sees transcendence of language as the way to Being, which opens to the vision of subject­object opposition. this theory is meant as a counterbalance to theories that accept multiple meanings and world interpretativeness.This counterbalancing includes Heidegger‘s existential ontology, which is connected with ontological hermeneutics.The article analyses the hermeneutics of facticity as the provider of premises in interpretative language and reveals existence in Šliogeris‘ “between“ swings, where centripetal direction is preserved. the article shows that these swings are being swung by the notion of Heidegger‘s existential ontology, kinetic conception of being, which is related to dasein‘s temporality and historical interpretation.
