    Heidegger, Dreyfus, and the Intelligibility of Practical Comportment
    Journal of the British Society for Phenomenology 50 (1): 68-86. 2019.
    ABSTRACTMost scholars agree that meaning and intelligibility are central to Heidegger’s account of Dasein and Being-in-the-world, but there is some confusion about the nature of this intelligibility. In his debate with McDowell, Dreyfus draws on phenomenologists like Heidegger to argue that there are two kinds of intelligibility: a basic, nonconceptual, practical intelligibility found in practical comportment and a conceptual, discursive intelligibility. I explore two possible ways that Dreyfus …Read more
  • The project is to unfold the dialogical aspects of human subjectivity as expressed through the existential phenomenology of Heidegger's Being and Time. The investigation is divided into three parts. ;Part I offers an interpretation of Heidegger's concept of subjectivity with emphasis on the movement from inauthenticity to authenticity. In order to mediate the more traditionally existentialist reading of Dasein's authenticity, I situate Being and Time within Heidegger's larger phenomenological pr…Read more

    The Ambiguity of Facticity in Heidegger’s Early Work
    Comparative and Continental Philosophy 5 (1): 99-106. 2013.
    The Early Heidegger’s Philosophy of Life: Facticity, Being and Language offers an interpretation of Heidegger’s concept of facticity as it is articulated in connection with the ideas of life and language in the lecture courses from 1919225. The book argues that facticity is both the source of vitality for theory and a source of deception and falsehood and therefore cannot be viewed in either positive or negative terms exclusively, but must instead be viewed as ambiguous. This essay argues that t…Read more

  • Infectious Nietzsche (review)
    Dialogue 38 (1): 194-195. 1999.
    Infectious Nietzsche is a collection of twelve provocative essays written by Krell during the years 1969-94. This fact accounts for the somewhat fragmentary texture of the work, but each piece adds another dimension to what Krell refers to as his interpretation of Nietzsche's "descensional" thinking, and, in this regard, they remain remarkably well coordinated.

    Meaning, categories and subjectivity in the early Heidegger
    Philosophy and Social Criticism 31 (1): 21-35. 2005.
    It has been suggested recently that Heidegger’s philosophy entails a linguistic idealism because it is committed to the thesis that meaning determines reference. I argue that a careful consideration of the relationship between meaning and signification in Heidegger’s work does not support the strong sense of determination required by this thesis. By examining Heidegger’s development of Husserl’s phenomenology, I show that discourse involves a logic that articulates meaning into significations. F…Read more

    The existential analytic of Being and Time is set within the frame of the Seinsfrage. This question arises for Heidegger out of his critical engagement with Husserl's phenomenology. More careful attention to Heidegger's project as a phenomenological one reveals that Dasein, the entity who asks the Seinsfrage and who always has a pre-ontological understanding of Being, is also intentional. Dasein's existentiality is an intentionality. I will argue that inauthenticity and authenticity may be fruit…Read more

    Overturning cartesianism and the hermeneutics of suspicion: Rethinking Dreyfus on Heidegger
    Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 44 (4). 2001.
    This essay critically engages Dreyfus's widely read interpretation of Heidegger's Being and Time . It argues that Dreyfus's reading is rooted in two primary claims or interpretative principles. The first - the Cartesianism thesis - indicates that Heidegger's objective in Being and Time is to overturn Cartesianism. The second - the hermeneutics of suspicion thesis - claims that Division II is supposed to suspect and throw into question the results of the Division I analysis. These theses contribu…Read more
