I just found this site and am looking forward to joining in the summer session. Would anyone be interested in working in discussions of some Terrence Malick movies? Dreyfus mentions Malick every once in a while and The Thin Red Line and The New World have later Heidegger all over them.

I think that would be a great idea. We have a lot scheduled meetings during the week so fitting in a discussion Malick's films should not be a problem. I have not seen "The New World" yet, but I plan to very soon. Another movie that comes up in the webcasts that we might want to discuss is "Babette's Feast".

I invite you to read my recently posted blog "The 'Leap'" at http://beyondheidegger.blogspot.com. It might clear a few things up for you, add to any confusion you may have, or you think you may not have any time to read it. Read it anyway, I think you will enjoy it. You will especially enjoy my reference to Hubert Dreyfus.

Pretty interesting content! Look, I was actually trying to get some information regarding Heidegger's hermeneutic system and how it influenced on the work of several linguistics and critics of literature on the middle of the 20th century.... but honestly, I think I can do that later, by now, I'll will read to death this mind-blowing blog!
