I could never understand what he could possibly mean by wisdom and it seemed *really* important. No really I don't think I have a clue at all...
I was wondering if the ultimate existential question is trans-humanistic suicide. Richard would go for it it seems, I'd probably claim that both alternatives are beyond being chosen and then cackle myself to death :?

Wait--wasn't it Husserl who wrote Logische Untersuchungen?


That's an eloquent way to boost about your limitations, Richard.
It is not entirely Heidegger's fault that you didn't understand
him. Others who had more perseverance managed to get a grip in
the end. After all he was just another failed priest who took
most of his inspiration from Husserl, local farmers and Meister
Eckhart. The idea that Wittgenstein wrote his Logische
Untersuchungen after his brain died opens new perspectives for
mr. Lemma. It would mean that death merely is liberation from
mathematical and logical oversimplifications.
I myself did read Heidegger and Husserl, and many other
continentals, but also the writers you mention above. I had to
during my study, because at the time you could not get away with
just studying only a group philosophers or a movement. Later I
wanted to understand what they were after. I must say I found it
very boring most of the time, too simplistic.
