‘History and World-Time’ explores how history can be accessed and serve as inspiration. Dasein's intrinsic historicality means that the past is intertwined with the present, and history is not dead and gone. Heroes from the past can provide opportunities for repetition, giving possibilities that can shape the fate of authentic Dasein. Inauthentic historicity, like inauthentic Dasein, is dispersed in the world of the present. Past philosophers are to be read with a view to their possibilities, but need to be placed in world-time. World-time, like the world itself, is significant and everything present at hand has its place. This contrasts with temporal now-time which is a homogeneous sequence of nows.
