My continental European philosophy class is still stuck on Heidegger. We became exhausted with ontology! The current lecture note starts off on historicality {Geshichtlichkeit}. Does anyone here have a handle on this?

Yesterday a friend with Asperger syndrome enrolled in the philosophy course. He read the notes--which he found odd! I think he'll be disagreeing from a materialist perspective, with Heidegger's views.

I don't know... He could be a savant.

Hi EyesoftheWorld:

"He could be a savant."
My Aspie friend claims to have been brilliant at maths in high school.

I have been slow at reading the class notes. Heidegger seems to have been anti-individualistic. I thought he was unimaginatively into copying! And I found his concept of marriage very conservative.

Not surprising, but in what way?

Hi Eudaimonist:

"Heidegger seems to have been anti-individualistic.

According to the class notes, one only became a being upon social engagement. And one's opportunity was defined by cultural history!

I spent part of yesterday evening discussing all this with a friend who recently enrolled in the course.

What does Heidegger mean by "one only became a being upon social engagement"?  What does becoming a "being" entail?

I understand that Heidegger defined being culturally. Thus marriage, as a social event, was being.

At last the teacher gave up on Heidegger. So the next reading will be on positive psychology (`authentic happiness').
