REL 498 (W) Heidegger and Theology: Being and Time (1)

This senior seminar will engage in a careful reading of one of the most significant 20th-century texts particularly with respect to its influence on New Testament scholarship as well as Roman Catholic and Protestant theology. Attention will be paid to the ethical ambiguities surrounding the place of Heidegger in the Nazi movement to illustrate the illusion of the academy as an ivory tower and to emphasize the political importance of thought.
