The Philosophy of Heidegger – a Film

Martin Heidegger is, without doubt, the most incomprehensible German philosopher that ever lived. Nothing quite rivals the prose in his masterpiece, Being and Time, which is full of complex, compound German words like Seinsvergessenheit, Bodenständigkeit and Wesensverfassung. Yet beneath the jargon, Heidegger tells us some simple, even at times, homespun truths about the meaning of our lives, the sicknesses of our time and the roots to freedom. We should bother with him.
