Martin Heidegger: What is called thinking?
ven. 1 mars à 19:30
From the back cover: "For an acquaintance with the thought of Heidegger, What Is Called Thinking? is as important as Being and Time. It is the only systematic presentation of the thinker's late philosophy and . . . it is perhaps the most exciting of his books." - Hannah Arendt This is session three of X to think together about philosophical questions that concern our understanding of reality as it manifests itself. FOR THIS SESSION, READ PART I LECTURES V, VI, VII and VIII. That's pages 48 through 87. Besides, all you need in short is an enthusiasm to talk about philosophical questioning itself. This is the third time we are meeting of this book. You are welcome to join also if you were not there the/a previous time(s). You can find links to the book in pdf format below. FOR RETURNING PARTICIPANTS
Dario and I want to facilitate participants to the previous four sessions on the work of Heidegger (now 2x on technology and 2x thinking) to bbe able to have the most opportunity to rejoin this and future new sessions. We have set the date for this event as the first of March. If you have already participated and want to do so again but cannot make it on March first, you are encouraged to write a comment down below and indicate all of the following dates when you would be available (same place, same hour). If we see we would get a better return participation on one of these other dates, then we will reschedule accordingly. Alternative dates are: FEB 21, FEB 22, FEB 27 and FEB 28. ABOUT OUR SERIES ON "WHAT IS CALLED THINKING?"
Is there a special kind of thinking that can be called philosophical? Within thought, what ways are there to get beyond thinking in systems and concepts but still maintain rigor of thought about the nature of Being? Heidegger lectured on this matter and these lectures are put in writing to us (see link below). What is called thinking? (German: Was heißt Denken?) is a book by Martin Heidegger, the published version of a lecture course he gave during the winter and summer semesters of 1951 and 1952 at the University of Freiburg. The draw/objective is to create a space for understanding (late) Heidegger by focused reading of his work. At the same time this might help us gain a wider understanding of forms of philosophical questioning. What's still the role of philosophy today?
