KT Answers: Unterwegs zu Heidegger Cul-De-Sac, pt.2

In the second part of our Q&A on corrosive influence of Heidegger, we turn to actual (not in the sense of presence, but in the sense of energeia) texts, i.e. to concrete examples of how he misinterprets Aristole's notions of energeia, kinesis, entelehia.

We conclude with overall evaluation of Heidegger's influence and remarks on low grade philosophy found online.


KT Answers: Unterwegs zu Heidegger Cul-De-Sac, pt.1

In this episode of our regular q&a podcast we answer reader's questions about the influence of Martin Heidegger on Internet based rightist identiterian movements. In the first episode we give an outline of the current state of Heideggeriana in the mainstream academia which seems to lead us to conclusion that Internet fringe apparently understood him far better than his academic followers and interprets. This was made clear mainly by finalization of Heidegger's Gesamtausgabe and publication of the so called "black notebooks" - diaries which, judging by his own evaluation, contained Heidegger's most intimate thoughts and the central point of his philosophy. As the end result is that it is now obvious that he was indeed a committed national socialist, at least in the sense of what he understood as meta-political essence of national socialism, and that this is also at the very least quite close to his project of the destruction of traditional metaphysics, the sizeable chunk of contemporary philosophers now seem to realize how they have been building their academic houses quite near the entrance of the underworld, if not even somewhat further down the hole.

Nothing on the Horizon: Introductory Passages of Heidegger’s “Being and Time”

KT's Department for Sanitary Measures in Modern Philosophy commences the reading of passages of introductory section of Martin Heidegger's "Being and Time". As Heidegger is often mentioned on these pages - and in quite negative light - we are obliged to provide some insights based on his own words. This video can serve as a companion piece for everybody lacking formal education in contemporary philosophy and following standard KT critiques of modern and postmodern intellectual deviations, where Heidegger's name, strangely enough, often seems to pop up.
