About this item

The author explores several interrelated problems about logic, sense, truth, and time, drawing on Martin Heidegger’s thought and work and other philosophical discourses, including Plato and Aristotle and those of contemporary “analytic” philosophy. He focuses on the relationship between thought and time, in which being and becoming are understood within the life of a being that is temporally situated. In the first section, he develops an interpretation of the truth of sentences as based ontologically in the deeper underlying sense of the being of entities and formally-logically in the logical structure of language, and in the second part, he considers the ontological and temporal implications of this formal structure in terms of ontological realism predicated on the maintenance of bivalence, or the requirement that each statement be either true or false or both, with respect to ontological and temporal claims, leading to a realist and paradoxical account of the ontological basis of time as experienced and thought. He argues that this temporal structure can provide a critical perspective on the constitutive problems and essential limits of the global regime of calculability and technological manipulation of entities, information, and capital that constitute the contemporary world.
