The News on Sunday on popular culture.
[T]he encounter between Cassirer and Heidegger can be seen as a desperate attempt to rescue humans from the disintegration of unified sense of being, and total domination of life. In the debate, there was a lingering sense of festering past, and premonition of emergence of even more dangerous monsters in the future because of creation of political myths and technological engulfment of world. It is irony that Heidegger’s ideas were incarnated in the shape of fascism of Hitler.
Continuing the tradition of debate, on April 9, 2019, Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek and Canadian psychologist Jordan B. Peterson engaged in a debate titled “happiness: capitalism vs. Marxism” in Toronto, Canada. Although, it was dubbed as a ‘debate of the century’ and ‘the rumble in the realm of the mind’, it lacked the profundity and atmosphere of Davos debate of 1929.
