Can we Address the Question of Wrongdoing on the Basis of Heidegger’s Ontology?

Magdalena Hoły-Łuczaj

The paper aims to elucidate how Heidegger’s ontology enables us to address the question of wrongdoing – which goes beyond the simple binarism of metaphysics and ethics – in terms of exceeding the possibilities of a given being, which causes its essential deformation. The problem of ontological difference is of key significance in this regard, because deterioration of the condition of a being has to concern its ontological dimension and not only the ontic one. Moreover, according to Heidgeger, such a change is not merely a lack, which leads to establishing a non-private concept of harm.
