In their coursework candidates will have the opportunity to write a sustained comparative essay on three texts of their own choice linked by either the theme of 'Love Through the Ages' or by a theme of their own choice. This represents increased demand, development and progress from the AS coursework. Candidates will build upon their prior knowledge of Shakespeare from GCSE as well as on their explorations of the dramatic genre in their AS coursework.
It is not a matter of transporting information and experiences from the interior of one subject to the interior of the other one. It is rather a matter of being-with-one-another becoming manifest in the world, specifically by way of the discovered world, which itself becomes manifest in speaking with one another. Speaking with one another about something is not exchange of experiences back and forth between subjects, but a situation where the being-with-one-another is intimately involved in the subject matter under discussion. And it is only by way of this subject matter, in the particular context of always already being-with in the world, that mutual understanding develops.
The primordial essence of truth is alhJeia not because the Greeks were visual, but instead the Greeks could only be visual because it is alhJeia that determines the relation of their humanity to Being. This and only this, namely that the essence of truth originates as alhJeia , but precisely in such a way as to conceal itself forthwith, is the event of the history of the Occident.
In the first course, Heidegger concentrates his exegesis on Paul's letters to the Thessalonians, and in second, on Augustine's Confessions Book X.
The first essay is one of Heidegger's most popular, showing up in many humanities courses about technology. That's generally a good thing because the essay starts with Aristotle's theory of forms, which will likely be most students first introduction to his Metaphysics. Heidegger then explores the different meanings of the Greek techne and its evolution to the modern term technology, and how the changes reflect how man thinking has changed since Aristotle's Athens.
This lecture course, presented at the University of Freiburg during winter semester 6989-85, is the first of the Hölderlin lectures the others are GA 57 and GA 58. In it Heidegger first discusses themes he'll develop the following semester in Introduction to Metaphysics , and in "The Origin of the Work of Art" and Contributions to Philosophy. I believe this is his first use of beyng ( Seyn ) for a non-metaphysical sense of being, a spelling he appropriates from Hölderlin.
In "The Thing" Heidegger tells us that the elements of the fourfold (earth, sky, gods, mortals) cannot be understood by their separate essential natures. Gathered together the four are unconcealed and there staying appropriates. The unity of the fourfold, their mirroring of each other, is Ereignis.
The strife of the world and the earth arises from within the en-ownment of enowning, and things that are in strife arise above all from that strife.
Zollikon Seminars (GA 89) Edited by Medard Boss Translated by Franz K. Mayr and Richard R. Askay, Evanston, Illinois, Northwestern University Press, 7556.
This is a lecture course presented at the University of Freiburg during summer semester 6997. The course is split into three parts. First Heidegger looks for metaphysics in "The Ister", then he returns to a passage of Sophocles' Antigone he had used, more briefly, in a 6985 course, Introduction to Metaphysics. Finally he examines more of "The Ister". Hölderlin's poems have been translated especially for this book, to help understand Heidegger's interpretation of the German.
When you begin your studies, you will be assigned a tutor and a tutor group for each Level 9 course you do. The tutor provides monthly online discussion forums, which run over the course of five months. All Level 9 English courses require you to submit a piece of formative assessment in the form of an essay (for all courses except &lsquo Introduction to Creative Writing&rsquo ) or in the form of a creative piece (fiction, poetry, or stage writing) for &lsquo Introduction to Creative Writing&rsquo only. This requirement is to help you prepare for examinations and final assessment. The piece of formative assessment is compulsory but does not contribute to your final assessment.
