The Aporia of Limitation
A Question of Being in Heidegger

Following Aristotle’s statement, introducing the Book Z of his Metaphysics, that is “Being has many senses”, which is also so important to Heidegger, this paper will develop the hypothesis that Being, as we find it addressed in Heidegger, can be considered as a radical re-articulation of the question of limitation in its most general sense. This re-statement is to be conceived: A) as radical in the sense of bringing the question of limitation into the center of philosophical inquiry or rather to consider it the center of inquiry; B) as radical in the sense of a return to what we will consider the fundamental question of limitation - the question of the aporia of limitation; and C) as radical in the sense of a re-articulating the metaphysical interpretation of limitation.
