Abstract

DISCUSSION: HUMAN RESPONSIBILITY (A REPLY TO PETER WARNEK) by DANIELA VALLEGA - NEU According to Warnek, in my paper on decision in Heidegger’s Contributions I am moving towards a “human” responsibility, which Warnek under- stands in relation to a sense of decision that arises “ before the decision as the occurrence of being.” While Warnek is right to point out that human responsibility is a major concern in my paper, I do not com- pletely agree with his interpretation of what, according to him, this means for me. I believe that Heidegger opens a way to rethink in an original way essential decisions when he understands them not as actions performed by a human subject, but as occurrences of be-ing to which humans are exposed. It is in this exposure that the issue of human responsi- bility arises, but not as something over against the event of decision or over against the occurrence of be-ing. As I point out in my paper, as we Ž nd ourselves in major decisions, we Ž nd ourselves already to be responsible in the sense that we are called to take a stance in them. It is not clear to me how,
