The Suffolk Philosophy Society and the Philosophy Department present an event in the Philosophy Colloquium Series:

Heidegger’s Critique of Metaphysics
Taylor Carman, Barnard College, Columbia University

Abstract: Martin Heidegger is widely recognized as one of the last century’s most radical critics of traditional metaphysics. The term “metaphysics,” however, has meant different things to different philosophers, and there have nearly as many ways of criticizing it as there have been critics. They key to understanding Heidegger’s critique of metaphysics is the distinction he draws between entities (das Seiende) and being (das Sein). On the one hand, understanding entities as entities at all requires understanding them, whether tacitly or explicitly, in their being. On the other hand, he came to believe, concentrating on entities as such tends to blind us to the worldly conditions that render them intelligible, just as looking directly at visible things tends to draw our attention away from the lighting conditions that render them visible. So, in their very fixation on entities, Heidegger maintains, Western philosophy and science have amounted to what he calls a “forgetting of being” (Seinsvergessenheit). In this paper I shall try to make Heidegger’s critique plausible on analogy with a general feature of representations (pictures, propositions, etc.), namely, that their own status as representations necessarily withdraws from view the more one turns one’s attention to their contents or objects, which is to say, what they represent. Likewise, Heidegger maintains, “representational thinking” (vorstellendes Denken) foregrounds entities and in so doing relegates being to an inconspicuous background of human thought and experience.

Refreshments will be served.
