In contrast to the metaphysics of presence or substance ontology of traditional metaphysical thinking, this paper is an analysis of Martin Heidegger’s approach to Being where the individual or Dasein is the route to, the illuminator of, and the shepherd of, Being via his transcendence into Nothing, his meditative thinking, and his use and mastery of language and discourse. It also highlights on the import of such an approach to Being where man is the fundament of ontology.
