34 L’. Ucˇnı´k to infer from knowing the triangle that triangles exist? Patocˇka does not ask these questions; he asks, instead, how we can address “the question concerning what is” (Patocˇka 2008 [1931]: 28, italics in original). We can formulate the problem differently: is Patocˇka inquiring about the being of beings or is he searching for evidence concerning our ways of knowing? Does Patocˇka ask a question about the being of a thing or a state of affairs that is in the world, or does he ask how he can know and give evidence for his knowing about a thing or a state of affairs?

The idea expressed in this whole is truth (Patocˇka 2008 [1931]: 15). The question remains, is this an ideal or a real triangle? In the domain of scientific cognition, which Patocˇka considers, how can we think this difference? By contrast, common sense (sensus communis) is qualitative and not quantitative. Although quantitative thinking – in other words, scientific knowledge – is based on our original, qualitative sense, our everyday experience is not quantitative (Patocˇka 2008 [1931]: 66). We know that when we throw a rock against a window, it is very likely that the window will break.

Consciousness becomes dynamic”, with its own time experience, where “past awaits each present which drags the future with it” (Patocˇka 2008 [1931]: 35). As Patocˇka writes, “my own being and time clash against each other. On the one side, I am like everything else being here by the grace of time, dependent on time, without any guarantee that at any given moment there will be a future for me; on the other side, I have the idea of time, which is nothing empirical. This universal idea elevates me above particular time [of finite existence]” (Patocˇka 2008 [1931]: 35).
