Mormon Awakenings: Episode 024: Heidegger’s Revenge

Jack Naneek mixes some philosophies of men with a little scripture. Heidegger’s philosophical text Being and Time is discussed.  How we interpret the world, and break free from it,  are examined.  Maybe the echo chamber needs a window or two opened.  In the end, we consider whether new wine really does need new bottles, or, if the old guard is right, and we all just need to move back into the Garden of Eden.

  1. Superb, insightful, and helpful.
    A great way to embrace the here and now and do something about it while being compassionate with those who are both fond and critical of the past.

  2. You are using the term schizophrenic incorrectly. Schizophrenic does not mean a split personality or split ideas. It is a specific mental illness in which the person is split from reality.

    • You are right of course. But, when used colloquially, it also implies contradictions in one’s thinking. See Websters: (in general use) a mentality or approach characterized by inconsistent or contradictory elements. Having said that, I’m very sensitive to mental illness as well and don’t want to confuse the two.
