All Your Obsessions In One Place reviews TV series Rectify.
It’s not simply that we are all going to die—though we are, and I apologize for reminding you of that fact—it’s that each of us is defined in relation to our own end. We can push it aside, and most of us do most of the time. We instead get caught up in the affairs of the world, whether it’s celebrity gossip, or sports, or even politics taken in a certain way—we get caught up in what They think and how They value us. We allow ourselves to be determined by those others. And Heidegger thinks a real confrontation with death can snap one out of all of that.
