Heidegger and Humanism

This talk presents the most important aspects of Martin Heidegger’s thought, by virtue of comparing and contrasting it with traditional conceptions of humanism. As much as Martin Heidegger was controversial as a person, especially as regards his political involvements, his contribution to philosophy remains a unique body of insightful arguments. The talk will explain Heidegger’s most central concepts: the concept he uses to denote human existence [Da-sein] as part of his criticism of subjectivity, the meaning of Being and its relationship with Time.


Christos Hadjiaonnou is an assistant tutor in philosophy at the University of Sussex with research interests in 20th Century Continental Philosophy, notably in phenomenology and existentialism. His DPhil topic is "Heidegger and Moods" focusing on the question of the meaning of Mood (Befindlichkeit/Stimmung) in Heidegger's phenomenological ontology.

Christos has also contributed articles to Cypriot newspapers (Politis, Simerini, Phileleftheros), remaining committed to a just and democratic settlement of the Cyprus Problem.
