Let's Talk About Being: The Heidegger Workshop

Our reading of Being and Time moves forward beginning this time at section 12 (h.53) "A Preliminary Sketch of Being-in-the-World, in terms of an orientation towards Being-in as such". No prior reading is necessary as we will be working through the book live in meetup.

Our approach will be a slow one though the temptation will be to move quickly.  Frequently, we will find ourselves asking the question "what does this mean" and our instinct will be to run forward in the text, either looking for clarification or just seeking a place of greater intellectual traction.  But while a quick survey of the book can be valuable so too will be our slow study.  "What does this mean?" is easily changed to "what might this mean?" and confronted with this latter question we will find that our intellectual resources are not so small that we cannot produce a profitable answer.  

A final note.  Though it may be helpful to compare the two major English translations it would also be helpful if we were primarily reading from one of them.  The Macquarrie & Robinson translation is encouraged.

    My not being able to attend prompts me to relate a favorite Heidegger quotation. "In order to remain silent Da-sein must have something to say.' Hope it is found to be apropos.

    How tractable would you say this is for somebody to start in the middle?

      We arent very far in...you can catch up in a jif. Plus, the group doesn't have a 'group understanding' yet. So doing your own work is the best thing you (or anyone) can do
