Indeed , Heidegge1' claims that 'compared to beings which are immediately accessible , being manifests the character of holding itself back, of concealing itself in a ce1'tain manner' (TPR: 63). That the 1'e are entities, which emanate from being, demonst 1'ates that being's concealment is not total , but that there is concealment at all makes the task of identifying what being entai1 s that much harde 1'. This difficulty is compounded by the 'fact' that being escapes the static categories of traditional formallogic (BT: 23) , meaning that we have to find another logic to describe 'i t' and its difference from entities.
As such , Heidegger will resist associating being with identity or difference and instead claim that being is the 'ground' of difference and identity. The only way to truly think difference and identity is to think the being of difference and identity. Far from simply being different , being's capacity to be both singular and multiple, 0 1' identical and diffe1'ent, reveals the 'commonality' of being inherent to identity and difference and discloses that entities are not simply amaJgamations of pure difference , but neces町 sarily entail a combination of identity and difference.
