I'm a philosophy student that tends to post about really serious things unseriously and about really unserious things seriously.
I was once described as a "beautiful, intelligent iguana".
This programming book I’m reading is going full metaphysics of presence and Heidegger on me.
Martin Heidegger, ‘Being & Time’ (via aidsnegligee)
Derrida’s essay on Heidegger and sexual difference is really good. Oh God, I think derrida is charming me. Oh no.
oh, I meant the paper you read about heidegger & truth as correspondence! sorry, i can put words together, maybe
Oh, no, my fault for not being able to remember what I said just a few minutes ago. Damn, I suck at blogging sometimes. Also, sorry the response took so long, I had to re-find the essay.
But! The article is called “Heidegger and Truth as Correspondence” by Mark A. Wrathall.
The article argues that while Heidegger argues that theirs a Truth that’s more primordial than any sort of correspondence theory, once we reach that sort of primordial type of knowing/truth, Heidegger basically says we have a mental correspondence with objects.
Here’s a link to a scribd version of the book I found it in: http://www.scribd.com/doc/28602737/Heidegger-Reexamined-Volume-2
