“Heidegger makes it clear that we can never go back behind this initial throwness and appropriate it in such a way that the nullity inherent in it is removed. The socio-historical situation into which we have been thrown is the basis for our being. No matter how we decide to move forward, anything that we do will have been done on the basis of the situation in which we find ourselves.” –Hans Pedersen, “Heidegger’s Appropriation of Aristotle’s Phronesis,” The New Yearbook for Phenomenology and Phenomenological Philosophy, Vol. 10, (2010), p. 230.
