Heidegger's "Second Masterpiece"


Here are some of the themes covered:


  • What was the first beginning of philosophy?
  • What are the stages or phases of the first beginning of philosophy?
  • Why does Heidegger say that the first beginning of philosophy has come to an end?
  • What is another beginning of philosophy?
  • What is the implied political philosophy of the other beginning, if there is one?
  • What in the world is "beyng" (seyn) and why does it matter?
  • What does Heidegger say about other thinkers like Plato and Nietzsche?
  • How does the Contributions relate to Being and Time?


Is Heidegger is the key to our past and future?

What Students Are Saying...



"It's a very high value program... You really are passionate about these issues and questions and you bring that to your study and your teaching. I'm very glad that I did both the course and the tutoring together."


“I’d recommend your courses to people who are new to philosophy or people who have a background in it."


“You’ve opened up a whole way of thinking about politics that breaks the liberal paradigm."


“It offered a way of seeing and thinking that provided a brand new framework.


"I could not see what I learned to see from you."


"I don’t think I could have got a better start in my study of philosophy.”


"Overall, this was a masterclass in pedagogy and evenhandedness"


"Michael Millerman is a man on fire. I’ve taken two of his courses and will take more. He insights on Strauss, Heidegger and Dugin are not to be missed. His book, podcast, YouTube channel and numerous scholarly articles are beacons of clarity and coherence in a maelstrom of ideological confusion. I hold a humanities PhD and left academia years ago having found it irredeemably corrupt. Professor Millerman has almost single-handedly restored my hope in high-minded inquiry. He directs one’s attention to what is, at once, timely and timeless."


"I recommend taking anything Millerman teaches"
