Mormon Metaphysics is inquiring about epistemology.
Certainly one big change between the earlier Heidegger and the later Heidegger is a move towards artistic insight as constitutive of knowledge rather than rational investigation. This is roughly the Peirce/Derrida move. However it seems to me that, if only as a tool for an artist, rational investigation brings a lot. I’ve tended to rethink many things on the basis of various epistemology papers I’ve read. Peirce clearly valued a careful logical investigation of the issues as well. Even if, as the later Heidegger notes, there are ungrounded premises for our reasons, the way we arrive at those premises will be significantly affected by our general inquiry.
