PHIL 6649 Philosophy of Being I (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

Postmodern metaphysics as a science of being requires deconstruction and reconstruction. The question of being, first raised in antiquity, was replaced in modern philosophy by questions of logic and epistemology. Heidegger brought the question back to the forefront of philosophy as "the task for thinking at the end of philosophy." In this course, after our own deconstruction of ancient and modern metaphysics we shall attempt a reconstruction with a more positive outcome than Heidegger's, stressing anew the analogy of being and its transcendental properties as one, active, true, and good, constituting being as universe.
