"What is Metaphysics?" - Analyzing Heidegger's Seminal Lecture at Freiburg
Why is there something rather than nothing? In this episode, Craig, Matt, Will, and Adam address Heidegger’s inaugural lecture “What is Metaphysics?”. For Heidegger, the central problem of metaphysics lies at the level of the “is” itself. His pursuit is to establish a fundamental understanding of Being, something he believes has been almost entirely overlooked since the split between Plato and Aristotle. This piece also touches on many central elements in Heidegger’s earlier work, ranging from the ontical nature of the physical sciences to Heidegger’s notion of the relationship between Dasein and nothingness that is “already given”. To Heidegger, the truth of metaphysics dwells upon a “groundless ground”. It is the entrance into that space—that going beyond—that this episode is particularly centered around. Sartre, Hegel, Zen Buddhism, and yes, even Deleuze fold into the discussion as well. So, attune yourself, and join us!

101. Britain, 2021: a new era of capitalist crisis
What is the outlook for class struggle in Britain in 2021? The pandemic was a world-shattering turning point. All the weaknesses of capitalism were laid bare in 2020. But in few countries more so than Britain. The nightmare which began in 2020 has not been limited to public health, but has infected the already-ailing world economy – with British capitalism the worst hit of all the major capitalist powers. Working-class and young people have already suffered hugely as the bosses try to pass on the pain. The bare-bones Brexit deal will only make things worse for Britain’s capitalist rulers. Boris Johnson’s Tory government has been completely exposed for its incompetence and craven defence of profit over lives. But Keir Starmer’s Labour offers no opposition whatsoever. Britain’s working class has no political voice – and desperately needs to build for a new, independent, mass workers’ party. Already this year, the trade unions have overturned the government by forcing part-closure of schools. And young people showed they are ready to explode in protest in last year's Black Lives Matter movement. British capitalism is not well. Meanwhile, Britain’s working class is angry – but lacks political organisation and leadership. This episode of Socialism look at Britain in 2021: a new era of capitalist crisis.
