Heidegger and the question of being
Mon 9 October 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm BST
Want to stretch your brain a little? Martin Heidegger was the most important and controversial philosopher of the twentieth century. His masterpiece, Being and Time, explores what it means to be human, and challenges many of western philosophy’s cherished concepts. The question of being is not simply another ‘concept’ but a philosophy of life in which we are immersed.
Being and Time is one of, if not THE most difficult philosophical works to digest and it is the task of Andreas Wasmuht to explore the key notions in a way which provides a clear insight into what it means to be human using Heidegger’s magnum opus.
The talk will be in English with explanations of key terminology in German.
