Martin Heidegger is without doubt the most incomprehensible German philosopher that ever lived... #heidegger
So begins this video, which offers a lovely overview of this strange man and his stranger thinking, such as:
- We've forgotten to notice that we're alive (our Dasein, the strangeness and wonder of it all before the claim of das nichts, the nothing, the inescapable end of all of us)
- We've forgotten that all being is connected (I found this out on LSD - I'm pretty sure Heidegger wouldn't have done, so I guess his brain was just wired that way...)
- We've forgotten to be free and to live for ourselves (we're thrown into this world into a particular time and place - we should rise from this provincialism to a universal perspective and so become authentic and live for ourselves and not follow the chatter of theyselves - by focusing on our death, das nichts).
