Heidegger discusses his own beliefs in relation to realism and idealism in section 43 of Being and Time. This viewpoint is based on a traditional Cartesian analysis wherein people are subjects, and the outside world is an object. In spite of the fact that Heidegger is neither an idealist nor a realist, this essay will contend that he tries to preserve the kernel of genuine inquiry present in each perspective by finding a hint of compatibility in both realism and idealism by examining Dasein as being-in-the-world.
