Description


Since Nietzsche, the history of philosophy has been about overcoming itself - what Wittgenstein and Heidegger referred to as the "End of Philosophy." A contemporary of these two was Jean Gebser, whose pivotal role in concluding the whole process is still largely unknown.

Heidegger went beyond conventional philosophy to explore the nature of thinking itself: "To think is to confine yourself to a single thought that one day stands still like a star in the world's sky." Based on Heidegger's instructions and armed with the Buddhist notion of Sunyata (Emptiness), Christian Reinhardt translates this "star" into an exact formula: everything/nothing.

The author dives deeply into the foundations of Emptiness and, in the process, reveals the link between Heidegger, Gebser, Buddhism and the essence of awareness. Above the level of the intellect stands the relatively unexplored realm of the intuition, direct "aperceptual" experience and the ineffable source of all reality which is Emptiness.

Reinhardt takes an unapologetic swipe at pedagogy, dismantling what stands today for education. The implications promise to transform both the humanities and science, and especially the fields of psychology and philosophy. He delivers an original yet sardonic contemporary testimony.
