"Always already" is important in Heidegger's idea that Dasein anticipates or is "ahead of itself". Heidegger's terms, ideas, and constructions are central to deconstruction, moreso than is Marxism. With the decline of Marxist critical theory after the 1960s, the phrase is still seen frequently in the discourse of literary theory, hermeneutics, and deconstruction/ post-structuralism into which continental philosophy moves after Heidegger, for example in Derrida's use of trace.
