In Arc Digital, Dale Wilkerson on time ticking away.
Heidegger had much to say about the difference between a life well-lived and a lesser kind of existence, and given his analysis about this difference, it would seem to be impossible to talk about popular modes of art within the Heideggerian framework, other than to discharge them as meaningless. Such artistic media is thought to be idle, inauthentic, an abyss of corruption and frivolity. But, I wonder about this particular point: Is Heidegger correct to say that a desire to live the authentic life requires the individual to remove herself from the idle talk of others in order to reflect upon the very real possibility and certainty of her death?
Yes, to get anywhere you first have to leave Facebook.
