    Abstract:
    In this thesis, it is our aim to discuss several aspects and developments of the Greek concept of πτῶσις, commonly know as case. This term was first coined by Aristotle in relation to both the grammatical and the philosophical category of the ὑποκειμένον (hypokeimenon) or subject. It is our contention that the concept of πτῶσις (ptōsis), as it was first developed by Aristotle and inscribed by the Stoic philosophers in a grammatical regime, can be deployed to inspect several aspects of Martin Hei- degger’s concept of the Verfallenheit or fallenness of Dasein, and that a reading of his work through the lens of Stoic grammatical theory reveals several complications of the concept of the subject that have, in our opinion, not yet been brought to the fore.
