[2020 Summer] Heidegger: Phenomenological Method II

[Lyceum Institute Seminars]

Martin Heidegger’s phenomenological method, unlike Husserl’s, does not rely upon a scientific precision.  Nor, like Max Scheler’s, is it merely an attitude of considering the relational value of “the things themselves”.  Rather, it is a persistent, recursive, reflective investigation that seeks to disclose the reality of what is in all its cognoscible dimensions.

WHEN: Wednesdays 6:30-7:30pm ET, August 5–September 23, 2020

WHERE: Online, Lyceum Institute using Microsoft Teams (license provided).

In the first* of this two-part seminar, Heidegger’s background, distinction from Husserl, and practice of the phenomenological method were examined primarily through the first division of Being and Time and selected texts.  Thereby, we discovered the core elements of the phenomenological method of disclosure.  In this, the second part of the seminar, we will examine how this phenomenological method affects the person whose life is permeated by the cognitive intentionality characteristic of Dasein.  This examination will be accomplished by carefully reading the second division of Being and Time and conclude with a meditation upon Heidegger’s Letter on Humanism, which brings Heidegger’s philosophy of being, as conducted phenomenologically, to its “point” of perpetually inconclusive linguistic elaboration.

*Note: registrants will be provided with a PDF of lecture notes from the first part of the seminar even if they did not participate in it.

Pricing for Lyceum Institute seminars operates on a principle of subsidiarity: those who have the means to pay more, ought to, so that those without such means may pay less. Even if you are not a professor, clergyman, or student, but find yourself wishing to sign up for a seminar while underemployed or otherwise in financial straits, feel free to sign-up at a lower cost. These costs are assessed on the honor system.
