PHIL2639 - Heidegger's Phenomenology
Semester 2, 2013 | Credit Points: 6
Coordinator: Nicholas Carl Malpas
Heidegger famously asks what it means to be. We will attempt to determine what he means by this 'question of Being', concentrating on the first division of his work "Being and Time", as well as the discussion of death and authenticity, and of temporality and everydayness, in the second division. Issues to be raised include Heidegger's critique of his teacher, Edmund Husserl, the relevance of Heidegger's work for cognitive science and whether Heidegger can be understood as an existentialist or a pragmatist - or neither.
