Heidegger's A.M. by Les Gottesman Coffee breaks the chain of neglect of the problem of being. Coffee grounds the problem in ancient inquiries concerning being not being beings. Before coffee what is not sought is not unfamiliar though ungraspable, hot, but after the first shot everyone understands "The sky is blue," "I am happy," statements like that. A white ring marks a dark table. The problem, the mug being unmistakable.
