Man only lives within a horizon and can never escape the bond with this horizon. 'Man cannot negate the horizon. Defeating the horizon would mean abolishing mankind. '75 So the horizon belongs to a realm which cannot be assigned entirely to mankind or to the world, but includes both in their original unity. We may best define it by means of the Kantian concept by stating that it belongs to the transcendental condition of the human being-in-the-world. For this reason the horizon is not anything within space, but belongs inseparably to the spatiality of human existence.
We may best define it by means of the Kantian concept by stating that it belongs to the transcendental condition of the human being-in-the-world. For this reason the horizon is not anything within space, but belongs inseparably to the spatiality of human existence. The human being always extends his space from the centre in which he stands, in the frame of a limiting and unity-forming horizon, and the fact that man never reaches his horizon, but his horizon travels along with him, shows only that the horizon belongs inseparably to the human being (here one can really say 'like the shell to the snail'), and thus the human being always remains the centre of the space enclosed by his horizon.
