10. Ecstatic Temporality and the Problem of Transcendence in Heidegger's _Being and Time_ (Section 69)
In this series of related podcasts on the metaphysics of personal identity, we've been exploring the most basic tenet of Existentialism that "existence precedes essence." After reviewing the Aristotelian meaning of "essence," we now go deeper into the existentialist meaning for "existence." First, we return to Sartre's definition of existentialism as a humanism and his assertion that the subject assumed by existentialism is a transcendent subject, a reference to Martin Heidegger's description of existence as ecstatic temporality in Being and Time.
