Ep. 10 – Heidegger’s Elucidations on Hölderlin’s Poetry

Join The Always Already trio as we contentiously read two selections from Heidegger’s Elucidations of Hölderlin’s Poetry: “Hölderlin and the Essence of Poetry” and “As When on a Holiday…” Not only do we get to read poems, but we do some philosophizing about it too! Discerning the essence of language, that of Being, and the nature of poetry in Heidegger’s work, Rachel, B, and John come to intellectual blows over Heideggerian ontology and his ‘method’. B gets a little passionate in his approach to the reading, using Levinas to resituate Heidegger’s Being in terms of ethics. Is it a good ethical fight? Listen and find out.

In this week’s advice giving, we offer up some favorite recipes and talk about how to choose which journal to submit an article to.

Thanks for Peter for suggesting we read Heidegger. Requests for texts for us to discuss? Advice questions to submit? Email us at alwaysalreadypodcast AT gmail DOT com. Subscribe on iTunes.
