In Heidegger's ontology, we can say that the fundamental question of metaphysics concerns the problem of the worldhood of the world. Our hypothesis is that the concept of recollection (Versammlung) structures the worldhood of the world in an ontological circularity. In this sense, our goal is to show how the ontological difference grounds the significance of the world through the structure of recollection and through the anticipatory character of ontological circularity. We intend to indicate, on the one hand, that recollection structures the interwoundedness (Bewandtnis) that determines, in advance, the worldhood of the world; and, on the other hand, that circumspection (Umsicht) is the prior disclosure of the referential understanding that, while being structured by recollection and ontological circularity, refers to the Umzu (in-order-to) and Wozu (towards-which) in the significance of the world. Finally, we will identify why the worldhood of the world, in Heideggerian philosophy, is not an instrumentalist conception of the world.
