Being with beings, being being and Being

Author(s): Dr. Daniel Shorkend


A phenomenological account of the contents of consciousness and the flow of consciousness points to an experience of reality that is difficult to define, understand and grasp. One feels immersed within an experience that is said to occur in time-space. Yet, precisely what it means to be “in” space or “in” time is not at all clear. In addition, one occupies this space-time with other beings, each having a level of conscious being from the inanimate, “dumb” stuff of the world to more sentient plant life; even more aware animal life and thence one’s fellow human beings, to whom one imputes a similar occasion of conscious awareness. Nevertheless, there is a sense in which one cannot quite articulate what it means to be so placed – is it an alien world, a solipsistic world, a relational world? Is there a higher consciousness or being that supervenes or underlies all such relationships? It is such questions that I will grapple with in the hope of somewhat understanding philosophically what it means to be a being and more precisely a being within world, within Being itself.
