Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Merleau-Ponty all appreciated the complexity of this interinvolvement. That is one reason you can find out more about your ontology through comparison with that of others. You do so first by drawing implicit elements into the foreground through critical comparison, and second by working on intensive thought fragments below articulation until they are altered and polished enough to be rendered articulate. The unarticulated dimension of an ontology is thus not only tacit; some of its elements are incipient in the sense that some embedded, ideationally imbued intensities must be altered in this way or that in order to be drawn into an intersubjective network of articulation.
