Neither science nor culture could exist without a participant–observer and a conceiving human mind. Being-in-the-world, or “Dasein,” as Heidegger termed it, is fundamental to any conceptual understanding we have of how things work in the universe. There is no view from nowhere. Psychology is the primordial ground in which the tree of knowledge has its roots. © 2004 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Clin Psychol.
