Giovanbattista Tusa's lecture on Heidegger's Being and Time is part of the seminar "Continental Glissement: German Idealism & the French Inhuman", which traces the ways in which Romantic philosophy of Schelling and Novalis seeps into major ideas of German Idealism. Heidegger intensifies Nietzsche’s phenomenological deconstruction of Platonic truth and proposes art as the clearing in which truth appears. His unique ontological critique of Western metaphysics “slips” into French itineraries, such as Jacques Derrida’s project of deconstruction and Luce Irigaray’s feminist reorientation of psychoanalytic theory. Then, in response to Merleau-Ponty’s assertion that “all the great philosophical ideas of the last century...had their beginnings in Hegel,” we trace Hegel’s ideas through 20th-century French post-humanists, arriving at studies of Foucault and Lyotard. In the last stay of this journey, Vattimo combines Marxist critique with a hermeneutical reading of Heidegger, Nietzsche, Derrida and Lyotard, opening to further developments and “glissements.”
