The aim of Sein und Zeit (1927) is a universal phenomenological ontology, by means of a concrete elaboration of the problem of being. The method is a combination of phenomenological analysis and hermeneutical interpretation. Ontology, or the question about being, is approached through fundamental ontology, or the analysis of personal existence. This existential analysis shows man as being-in-the-world, being-with-others, and being-unto-death. Man's being is care, and the meaning of care is finite temporality. An important project sectio of Sein und Zeit has not been published. In lesser works, Heidegger examines such themes as the nature of truth, the nature of ground (reason, cause), metaphysics, aesthetics, nothing, freedom, and interpretations of other philosophers. He attempts to go beyond conceptual though to truth, as the openness of personal what he calls Hegel's "Onto-Theo-Logical Conception of Metaphysics."
