Keywords: Martin Heidegger | theory of Being | time

Martin Heidegger and Immanuel Kant - two important pillars of contemporary philosophy-were proficient critics of traditional metaphysics in their time. They were known to be critical of a sort of metaphysical striving predisposed to grounding or representing an elusive concept of the universal. (At least, for Kant, the limits of representation are problematized vis-à-vis the regulative principle of the mind). Kant had earlier deconstructed a pre-eminent feature of Western metaphysics, namely, the socalled essence of thing (Ding-an-sich), had it consigned to the noumenon evocative of the paradoxical nature of human knowing: it regulates the boundaries according to which any notion of the infinite, the universal or the absolute can be reflexively thematized, or, thus strategically said, problematized.
