Lecture: Heidegger’s Logocentrism and the case of Geist
23 April @ 15:30 - 17:00
Lecture by Dr. Dror Pimentel
(Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem)
The logocentric thesis – the hallmark of Derrida’s early philosophical oeuvre – unearths the inherent preference given to speech over writing throughout the history of metaphysics from Plato to Husserl. The aim of this talk is, firstly, to clarify the features of the logocentric thesis, and secondly, to point out the presence of this thesis in Heidegger’s discussion of Spirit (Geist). The presence of logocentric features in Heidegger could attest to his belonging to metaphysics, which he labored to overcome.
