 20th WCP: Heidegger's Reading of Descartes' Dualism: The Relation of Subject and Object
The orientation of the philosophical problems with Descartes starts from the "ego" (the "subject") because in the modern philosophy the "subject" is given to the knower first and as the only certain thing, i.e., the only "subject" is accessible immediately and certainly.

Subject and object are not two beings, because they are the basic determination of Dasein in the unity of the characteristic of Being-in-the-world.
