Access from EThOS:
Being and Time 's ethical import has been largely overlooked or even flatly denied. This thesis shows an ethical aspect of Being and Time in Heidegger's account of Dasein. In order to show the ethical importance of this concept a number misreadings of the text must first be clarified. The first chapter of this work critiques Frederick Olafson's and Joanna Hodge's attempts to build an ethics on the fundamental ontology of Being and Time. In doing this we can see that these two failed attempts began by granting ethics far too modest a role in Being and Time.
