Facing the challenges of modernity: Martin Heidegger and the role of the humanities
This article’s goal is to examine why and how Humanities –Philosophy, in particular– can still play an important role in our understanding the modern society’s problems of being and the ontological challenges they raise. Taking as point of departure Martin Heidegger’s philosophy, emphasis will be laid on the analysis of technology’s role in modern man’s life as well as on the significance of Sacred and of Being in a western society shadowed by Nietzche’s “Death of God”. Finally, attention will be paid to the necessity of integrating into our everyday life the thinking about truth and Being’s meaning for us.
