Object-Oriented Philosophy

If you click the new “Free Articles” option at the top of this blog, you’ll find a list of the 20 of my articles that I’ve managed to post so far to the DAR system at the American University in Cairo. Each title in the list can be clicked for a link to a free PDF.

I’ll try to keep adding more articles to the list, though some publishers’ policies are fairly restrictive as to what can be posted on a university web server.

If you’re wondering why many of these articles are scanned photocopies, many publishers are willing to have those posted, but are very unhappy if the original publication-quality PDFs are placed online.

For Harman, was Hitler Heidegger’s ‘tool-being’ of ‘da-sein’?

In 1933 Heidegger stated :

“The German people has been summoned by the Führer to vote; the Führer, however, is asking nothing from the people; rather, he is giving the people the possibility of making, directly, the highest free decision of all: whether it – the entire people – wants its own existence (Dasein), or whether it does not want it. On November 12, the German people as a whole will choose its future, and this future is bound to the Führer. […] There are not separate foreign and domestic policies. There is only one will to the full existence (Dasein) of the State. The Führer has awakened this will in the entire people and has welded it into a single resolve.

Let not propositions and ‘ideas’ be the rules of your being (Sein). The Führer alone is the present and future German reality and its law. Learn to know ever more deeply: that from now on every single thing demands decision, and every action responsibility. Heil Hitler!” Martin Hediegger, November, 1933.

Heil Harman!
