What does it mean to be?

This course is a comprehensive overview of Martin Heidegger's classic 1927 work Being and Time. We are using the Stambaugh/Schmidt translation, shown.

The four lectures will help you understand Heidegger's enigmatic project and unusual terminology. You'll begin to see the inner logic of the book as we have it and to connect the key ideas together with a single thread.

The focus of the course is on clarifying Heidegger's meaning and intention. This instructor does not present a historical overview or contextualization of Being and Time.

Instead, the course seeks to make the book more easily accessible to first time and repeat readers.
