Heidegger Resources

I know that iwpoe is a big fan of Heidegger with regards to his understanding of being and how it relates to classical theism, but does anyone else know other resources which expand upon this? I think I may have found one

Re: Heidegger Resources

You like Heidegger too? What are your reasons for admiring him and how does this relate to classical theism?

Re: Heidegger Resources


Since I've not read him per se, I can't say I like Heidegger. I am interested in his work and I will read him sooner rather than later. I was given this series by a friend who told me that it was a pragmatist interpretation of Heidegger that couldn't be hand-waved or ignored. Given that, I will have to read him in due time and I'll tell you what I think, then.

Re: Heidegger Resources

I can make you a big list. So gimme a bit. The standard problem I run into reading about Heidegger in English is that most Heidegger scholars are incompetent with respect to classical metaphysics. Since his project is supposed to largely amount to a "confrontation" with the tradition, it is a travesty to have no deep understanding of that tradition. Dreyfus, for instance, God bless him, is in that position.

It is precisely “values” that are the powerless and threadbare mask of the objectification of beings, an objectification that has become flat and devoid of background. No one dies for mere values.
