ABSTRACT

Karl Jaspers considers that in order to advent to Being itself, certain limit sit- uations must be faced, among which are death, suffering, struggle, chance and guilt. Only by entering these limit situations does it come into existence. But Jaspers did not consider time as a limit situation in which we are from the origin in an improper time and from which we make the existencial leap to our own time through decisive precursor actions. This article argues that time, considered mainly from Heidegger, is properly a limit situation, which, through its willful confrontation, advents to Being itself. For this reason, a phenomenological hermeneutical investigation is carried out, that semanti- cally updates the concepts of Being itself, the limit situation, temporality and existence.
