“Time” Thursday, October 21

 

What is our interest in this fascinating aspect of our reality?  For Heidegger, time is co-original with being and at the basis of human existence.  There are several relations between time and its dimensions : means of measurement, horizon for human life projects, structuring patterns  (clock time), eternity (life after death), memory , productivity, etc.  The cultural interpretations of time will be taken into consideration to shed light on our understanding of this very ephemeral concept.

 

“Democracy” Wednesday,  November 24

 

Democracy has been considered the best political system amongst a bad lot.  A political system supposedly to be propelled by its citizens-the people.  Giving rise to a rule by majority, has its advantages, but it also raises some questions.  One of the conditions of this political system run by the people is that they be well-informed in order to make the right decisions.  Does the media inform us well or truthfully enough ? How can we avoid a ‘tyranny of the majority’ or a ‘manipulated mindset’?
