The paper raises the question: Could Heidegger have successfully completed his Being and Time as he proclaimed in its first edition? In the author's view, the fact that the second part of the book remained unwritten was an inevitable consequence of the turn: The question of Being in the second part of Being and Time remained unresolved, therefore Heidegger later focused on of the understanding of Being in Hegel, Leibniz, Heraclitus and Parmenides. The author argues, however, that even this important re-orientation could not lead to a successful accomplishment of Heidegger's original intention, to conceive Being without being, what would have enabled him to pass on from the metaphysics of being to the metaphysics of Being.
