OF MY FAVESThis is one of my favourite ecture courses by the German professor of philosophy Martin MY FAVESThis is one of my favourite ecture courses by the German professor of philosophy Martin fastidious penetration of two of Plato s dialogues including an outstanding unravelling of the parable of the cave from Book Ten of Republic should be but pure delight for the spiritually inclined among youA knowledge of Classical Greek or at the east of its alphabet and pronunciation is certainly recommended by this reviewer to appreciate the book s scope and spirit as Heidegger dissects Plato s anguage with razor sharp precisionI can t stress enough how beautiful this ecture Rt Two gives a detailed exegesis and interpretation of a central section of Plato's Theaetetus and is essential for the full understanding of his Obsession later well known essay Plato's Doctrine of Truth As always with Heidegger's writings on the Greeks the point of his interpretative method is to bring toight the original meaning of philosophical concepts especially to free up these concepts to their intrinsic pow. ,
Truth as Discovering is the central insight of this remarkable research Heidegger answers are not the decisive point in this research the decisive is the method Heidegger ook for an answer to this insight but not in new scholarship but ooking at Plato Heidegger ook for an answer to this insight but not in new scholarship but ooking at Plato dialogues about epistemeYou can *t criticize this text is not something ike criticize you can ook *criticize this text is not something ike criticize you can ook think but specifically you can find ways to see Edmund Husserl was the first to see the real meaning of true for the Greeks this first discovery gave Heidegger the clue of how to see the problem and guide the researchThis book gave the clarity to see in Heidegger answers the political affinity of his thinking with the nazi upheaval Heidegger in his search for truth open his cards and we can see his belated critic to Marxism ideology and also his new view about being being as something that you strive for this Strive is not a epistemology really something ike that is a mix of things but specially it works wonderful for Heidegger to understand the importance of the nazi movement as a striving for the German beingIs his philosophy nazi You can t say for sure that all this tirade is nazi you can see that the method is for sure not nazi is Husserl method in steroids But the answers are the main problem Heidegger and his right point of departure his ove for the original there is the main problem of his philosophy if you are free enough you can take the same way the same method and arrive to different conclusions What is true The answer is not important what you discover is the pathway to that The best Heidegger book I ve read Excellent addition to the Platonic dialogues covered He is right on with his definition of what is true and incorrect opinion Will reread this one for sure I ve only read the Allegory of the Cave but I iked Plato s point of view I enjoyed analyzing it This book makes a phenomenological engagement with two seminal texts in the founding of We. The Essence of Truth must count as one of Heidegger's most important works for nowhere else does he give a comparably thorough explanation of what is arguably the most fundamental and abiding theme of his entire philosophy namely the difference between truth as the unhiddenness of beings and truth as the correctness of propositions For Heidegger it is by neglecting the former primordial concept of truth in Stern philosophy Plato s cave allegory 514a 520a and Plato s Theaetetus Dialogue It Unfolds As It unfolds as The Mephisto Threat (Paul Tallis lecture which means the whole discourse is very easy to follow and Heidegger is at his mostucid and straightforward hereHis main thesis is that we need to understand how appearance and presenc ing but also concealment are inextricably inked to Being in the originary Greek conception of things rather than appearance s being a kind of concession or failure to engage with the real things in themselves as though their truth ay somehow behind the veil of mere appearance and phenomenonThe Bloomsbury publishing version of this book was obviously OCR ed from manuscripts of the translation since There Are Numerous Typos Of are numerous typos of Greek ambda is freuently confused for gamma and vice versa This won t be distracting for the non iterate in Greek since they l probably be skipping over the Greek words but it s irritating for anyone who notices the mistakes Artificial and crass but highly imaginative interpretations resulting in some interesting uestions regarding untruth and Being that aren t really explored much the Theaetetus is there precisely to show that with that dialogue one just can t I don t mind his favourable reading of the Allegory so much a
