In this podcast we talk about the traditional notion of Being and its unwarranted "deconstruction" by modern philosophers, premier among them being Martin Heidegger. As a starting point we take a passage from Boethius' De Trinitate on how Being can never be a subject or substrate and juxtapose it to Heidegger's "phenomenological destruction of traditional ontology" which claims that Tradition does precisely the opposite. From there on we point out the importance of spacial metaphors in metaphysics, where what is "groundless" can mean both something below and something above. It is our contention that thinkers in the vein of Heidegger confuse this metaphysical above and below, and seek abyss where traditional thought sought heaven.
Kali Tribune's Department for Philosophy in conjunction with Laboratory of Broken Mics and Fractured English proudly presents an interpretative reading of Ennead III, 7.

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.
Kali Tribune proudly presents an article by premier Croatian, and in our opinion, European, philosopher of post-WW II period, Marijan Cipra (Marian Tsipra) almost nobody knows nothing about both in Croatia and Europe. This 1986. article deconstructs Heidegger's phenomenological mess and proceeds to proclaim the need of the negation of a negation - a rebellion against the modern world, whose notable intellectual nusproduct is Heideggerian philosophy.
