Worlding (Welten) and un-worlding (Unwelten)

Dasein, being applied to the phenomenon of human existence at all, describes a world that is a world of thrownness and engagement, and temporalised in both its transience and its endurance. As factical , Dasein is being-in-the-world (In-der-Welt-sein); through Dasein, the world is what Heidegger calls “worlding” (das Welten), a phenomenon which happens in and through time. As the world “worlds”, it brings Dasein into this happening, an Ereignis that opens up Dasein‘s own possibilities in its ecstatic-horizonal projection upon the horizon of the question of being (Seinsfrage), which Dasein itself always is.
