Abstract: This inquiry considers a coalescence of epistemology and ontology as an initial stage to thinking about the condition of being-at-home-in-a-world. Martin Heidegger 's work on existence and being is discussed as a consideration of the relationship between self, world and earth. In addition to a Heideggerian perspective on existence, attention is given to Edmund Husserl and Martin Buber. In particular, Husserl’ s work with inter subjectivity and Buber s work with relationship as an expression of distance and engagement are considered as a means of expanding Heidegger 's thoughts on being in the world.
