PL 4320 - The Philosophy of Heidegger

A seminar focusing on the central ideas and issues of Heidegger’s earlier and later philosophy. Heidegger’s attempt to think through the question of Being leads him to discover that which has been unthought, to describe the phenomenon of truth, and to explore the making-present of Being in the creative act, as well as to describe essential structures of human existence. The course thinks along with Heidegger by studying major sections of Being and Time as well as selected later writings that are significantly different in style and content. Heidegger’s influence on later 20th century thought is also considered.

Prerequisite: PL 1100  or PL 1150 .
