Heading for the Land of Sunshine!
Written by DJ Mandrews on March 27, 2015
About what are we uncertain here?
We are not uncertain about what is moving.
It is not the case that we lack knowledge about the sun’s true behavior
or about how the earth’s rotation gives the appearance of the sun rising.
We are not uncertain about why it seems to us that the sun moves.
We are not uncertain about our perceptual experience or our scientific knowledge
or how the two are consistent.
I suggest that we are instead uncertain about which orientation we are to inhabit.
—Katherine Withy, Heidegger on Being Uncanny
