Features that remain essential to human flourishing even in the disengaged age) one can begin to have the sense that disengagement has forced the human frame into a contorted position. The ideal of the disengaged rational subject vowed to remake human life in a tidier and less vulnerable fashion, but Taylor’s lengthy analyses of attempts to implement this ideal press against the sense that this is a viable promise. For all of its success, the implementation of the disengaged stance was perpetually met by robust discomfort and opposition.
By pushing “togetherness” into the foundations of individuality it seems that Heidegger overcomes the sense (seen in Stroud, for example) that the “otherness” of the friend can only ever distort the coherent rationality of the individual. If the very condition of Dasein is that it is always already “with” [Mitsein], then it is the very idea of individual rational autonomy that begins to seem anomalous. 31 The suggestion appears initially promising, for it seems to eliminate the enclosure of individuality in a strong ontological assertion of togetherness.
By tracing the 30 fr iendship a s s ac r ed k now ing history of this stance and its relationship to others, he undercuts the argument that the self-evidence of such practices of reasoning counts towards their justification, suggesting rather that they feel self-evident only because, as an inhabitant of this “frame,” one is caught up into its practices and dispositions. Having taken off the burden of defending disengagement’s claim to neutrality in this fashion, Taylor then opens up a space to analyse with greater sensitivity the particular difficulties which have come along with disengagement.
