Pearl lines the come across among Freud and Heidegger through looking at the typical concept shaping their pondering: thinker Franz Brentano, who taught either Freud and Edmund Husserl, Heidegger's mentor. The publication travels down another direction, one neglected via Freudian concept - a direction major from Brentano, via Husserl and onto Heidegger's thought of time, that's based at the ecstatic' interrelation of earlier, current and destiny.

Comprehending the hammer in terms of handiness encompasses an entire set of characteristics which operate in the background, but are concealed from us when we comprehend the hammer solely as present-at-hand. In the above quote, Heidegger leads us away from the traditional understanding of the hammer as an isolated, closed off object, and into its discovery within the world of Dasein’s possibilities for being, or of the worldhood (Weltlickeit) of the world. The Worldhood of the world is not to be understood as a mathematical set of coordinates which locate the object in space, rather, it is a being which reveals itself through handiness and disclosed through Dasein’s already existing “within the worldˮ.
