Martin Heidegger's Being and Time, one of the most important philosophical works of the 20th century, marks a radical break with the Western Philosophical Tradition and ushers in an entirely new way of thinking about the nature of human existence that has relevance to all aspects and areas of human endeavor, the human and social sciences and the most basic questions of philosophy. Heidegger's aim is no less than to return the focus of philosophy back to that of 'ontology' while redefining what ontology means in the modern age. The two additional articles we will read have been highly influential for the philosophy of art and for the critique of technology. As an advanced reading class in philosophy, this module offers you an opportunity to grapple with, penetrate and master primary texts.
