A moment's googling found this:

and of course it's also the *title* of an important journal, from Stanford.

The word/concept as it has developed in current discourse derives from
Martin Heidegger, a German philosopher with whom I, for one, have very
little sympathy. And there is no doubt that the world is full of mumbling
poseurs who babble pomo terms like this as a way of avoiding thinking, and
that's a shame. It doesn't give us a warrant to act as if the core
discussion itself is worthless.
