MIT Architecture's Mark Goulthorpe on Heidegger and technology.
Today Springer has published a new bibliography of the Gesamtausgabe.

It'll cost you bitcoin 0.112 in US$, ฿ 0.126 in €, or ฿ 0.138 in £. I'd pay in greenbacks. An alternative is to use this bibliography. It does not have the level of detail (pagination in die Bände) but it is in HTML, which is a little easier to navigate than a PDF file.

Martin Heidegger, the Mulla Sadra of Western philosophy.
Transcendent theosophy is the school of Islamic philosophy founded by Mulla Sadra in the 17th century. His philosophy and ontology is considered to be just as important to Islamic philosophy as Martin Heidegger's philosophy later was to Western philosophy in the 20th century. Mulla Sadra bought "a new philosophical insight in dealing with the nature of reality" and created "a major transition from essentialism to existentialism" in Islamic philosophy, several centuries before this occurred in Western philosophy.

Agent Swarm on the struggle against hegemonic correlationism.
Nor do I see any reason to accept at face value that “phenomenology” is inherently correlationist. Bernard Stiegler has often remarked that the Husserl of “Origins of Geometry” introduces a new epoch in his thought, that breaks open the subject-object enclosure by making writing as tertiary retention enter essentially into the constitution of mathematics. Dreyfus and Spinosa argue convincingly that Heidegger’s thing-paradigm breaks with the potential closure and correlationism inherent in his understandings of being paradigm. The spectre of “orthodox correlationism” as a dominant paradigm enslaving thought and paralysing action is a chimera that has no foundation if one consults the works of the major post-structuralist French thinkers.

The papers presented at the Black Notebooks conference at Emory last month are now online, on iTunes.

Does anyone have an iTunes account, and can share the files on a web site or bittorrent? They're free, just not accessible from machines without Apple software.

Archinect on thanking your old socks.
While perhaps laughable to some – particularly within the context of home-organizing –, taking seriously the idea that inanimate objects have a life of their own parallels a lot of emerging thought in contemporary philosophy. In particular, the philosophical school of "Object-Oriented Ontology" (OOO) seeks to destabilize the tradition of Western philosophy since at least Kant that relegates the reality of objects to their conforming to the human subject's perception. Graham Harman, whose doctoral dissertation "Tool-Being: Elements in a Theory of Objects" sparked the OOO movement, effectively responds to the philosophy of Martin Heidegger: "Hammers break in different ways from drills, which break in different ways from hearts, kidneys, and lungs. The shocks and surprises generated by failing equipment are not random. The world is not a single lump broken into pieces by consciousness, but consists of individual pieces from the start."
For when Ereignis is not sufficient.
