Event details

Selfhood, Authenticity and Method in Heidegger’s Being and Time. Seminar series supported by the British Academy.

Although Heidegger’s Being and Time is often cited as one of the most important philosophical works of the last century, its second division has largely been ignored, especially in commentary by philosophers from the analytic tradition. But, inspired by a growing recognition of the philosophical and theological influences that shape Heidegger’s thought, important readers have recently begun to re-examine this difficult second division and the suspicion is growing that there is something of real philosophical substance in its concerns; in particular, its discussion ofauthenticity is coming to be seen as having significant implications for how we ought to understand, for example, intentionality and autonomy. In 2011, the Universities of Southampton, Oxford and Essex will host a series of seminars which will extend these fascinating inroads that are beginning to be made into the difficult hinterland of Heidegger’s magnum opus.
