To an everyday, The Thing and Art 25 practical human attitude towards things. Scientific cognition is not a variant of epistƝmƝ, perceived in a Greek way, but namely of doxa. This at a glance doubtful statement is evidently confirmed by a practical orientation of science, which is lying immanently in the experimental nature of science and directly passing into technical crystals and technological functionalism of such cognition. All doxical knowledge in all times and everywhere (not only in Greece, but in the East as well) also has been practical.
The theoretical distancing of the thing’s being evidently shows its specificity. With regard to man, the thing’s being in general is something that is very far away, that is probably farthest from his immanent naturalism. Such farawayness from man of the thing’s being is The Thing and Art 31 expressed very simply: the thing’s being is possible only as beyond-human and senseless being. Functional senses of a thing are closest to man; sense, however, does not coincide with being, the being of a thing is the antipode of sense.
That is why the first step that brings closer to man not the function of the thing, but its being is to distance a real thing. So that a thing qua thing may indeed be close to man, in this case close to the subject of theoretical contemplation, first it has to be distanced. The thing gets close ontotopically only from afar, only after it has been put into a distant focus of theoretical contemplation. What does it mean to distance a thing? It means to tear it out of the anonymous instrumental closeness, to single it out of the realm of applicability and functional meanings.
