The author argues that our ontological understanding of signs remains incomplete as long as it is limited to Heidegger’s explicit analysis of signs in Being and Time. Besides focusing on §17 (the only section in this work that addresses signs explicitly), a full-scale evaluation of Heidegger’s ontology of signs must also inquire into (1) the relation between signs and the question of the meaning of Being, as well as (2) the role signs perform on the methodological level of formal indication. The paper’s main thesis will be that Heidegger’s explicit treatment of signs is irreconcilable with how signs emerge as problematic in (1) and (2). This irreconcilability stems from Heidegger’s presumption that non-linguistic signs are paradigmatic of signs in general.
Keywords: Formal indication, Fundamental ontology, Indication, Reference, Signs,Worldhood.
