- The purpose of the course is to give a full analysis of Heidegger's conception of time in his first book, Being and Time (1927). The course will focus on the second division of the book entitled "Da-sein and Temporality". The emphasis will be put on the concepts of Being-toward-Death and Resoluteness (1st week), Temporality as the Ontological Meaning of Care and Temporality of the Everydayness (2nd week), Historicity and the Vulgar Concept of Time (3rd week).
For 314 additional seminar meetings will be held by Lee Goldsmith after Professor Dastur leaves. These seminars will cover short readings from Heidegger's other works (i.e., besides Being and Time), which continue to develop the theme of time. The method of instruction for these meetings will be open discussion rather than lecture. In these weeks students will also be developing a research paper in consultation with Mr. Goldsmith. This paper and a short exegetical work to be turned in by the end of the 4th week will be the basis for evaluation.
