Philosophy is typically discussed and taught by abstract discussion of texts; however, a considerable body of research suggests that this method is unsuited to professionals and students who struggle to navigate philosophical writings. Diagrams are used in diverse areas of study to depict knowledge and to assist in understanding of problems. This paper aims to utilize schematic representation to facilitate understanding of certain philosophical works. The paper employs schematization as an apparatus of specification for clarifying philosophical language by describing ideas in a form familiar to computer science. Specifically, it is an attempt, albeit tentative, to schematize Martin Heidegger’s philosophical approach. His writings are notoriously difficult to understand, and the high-level representation described here seems a viable tool for enhancing the relationship between philosophy and computer science, especially in computer science education.
