Philosophy Talk: Heidegger

Apr 24, 2018

Martin Heidegger has been hailed by many as the greatest philosopher of the twentieth century. He has also been criticized for being both nearly unreadable and a Nazi.


Best known for his work Being and Time, there is no disputing Heidegger's seminal place in the history of Western thought. So what did Heidegger mean when he wrote about world, being, and time? What significance does he still hold as a thinker today, especially as a philosopher of modern technology? Should we even read the works of a Nazi? John and Ken are present and ready with Thomas Sheehan from Stanford University, author of Making Sense of Heidegger: A Paradigm Shift. Sunday 4/22 at 11 am and Tuesday 4/24 at 12 noon.
