Lincoln Philosophy Forum 02/03/2017 -Martin Heidegger: On the Nature of Language

Dear All

it doesn’t take much of a Martin mention for me to shovel him back in for discussion and his recent Rorty pop-up provides exactly that. To this end I am suggesting we read section one (about the first 10 double pages of the pdf) of ‘The Nature of Language’ .

I would also suggest this small optional reading which might help uncover what on earth he means by Ereignis.

The meeting will be in UL102 14:15-15:45.

with best wishes

Philosophy Forum 17/12/2014 -Martin Heidegger: The Thing

Dear All

following the discussion upon music -which mutated into a discussion about art- I thought about various options. However as its Christmas I thought how can we do better than the father Christmas of (at least Continental) twentieth century philosophy: Martin Heidegger. The Origin of the Work of Art is too long but The Thing is just right; packed with many familiar Heideggerian gifts of Being that we love so well (some of us).

So come along for a festive forum (Room UL102 14:15-15:45) and see what kind of Thing Dasein will appropriate for Christmas.

Ho Ho Ho.

Best

Graham
