#139- Heidegger’s “What Is Metaphysics?” Part 1

Scott and Karl begin their discussion of Martin Heidegger’s ten-page lecture “What is Metaphysics?”.

This lecture was presented to the faculties of the University of Freiburg on July 24, 1929, as Heidegger’s inaugural address.

Taking the typical continental approach, Heidegger isn’t telling us what metaphysics is; instead, he’s instructing us on how to do metaphysics so that it may present itself.

Karl says, “This is a podcast about nothing. In order to talk about beings, you have to be able to talk about what aren’t beings.”
