Are all these only accidental moments, which we refer to just for a more vivid depiction of the situation, or are they constitutive elements as it were, which have a role in building up the essence of truth as unhiddenness? Are all these elements bound together by an inner connection? Indeed, is the unity of this interconnection, that which holds everything together, nothing else but unhiddenness?
— Heidegger, ‘On Plato’s Cave Allegory’ (tr. Sadler)
