Dispersion (Zerstreuung)

Onderzoeksoutput: ChapterAcademicpeer review


This entry in the lexicon concerns the notion of 'dispersion'. Dispersion is a condition that befalls Dasein, in which it loses a coherent focus as it is drawn or attracted to the many and various possibilities of everydayness. In Being and Time, the German term for “dispersion” – Zerstreuung – is also translated as “distraction” and is used to describe Dasein’s everyday, inauthentic way of being in the “anyone.” Dasein’s inauthentic everyday self is absorbed in and distracted by the world around it.
