Oh god, no way could I have read Being and Time withOUT throwing it in the river. I think there's more about Husserl and Jaspers in upcoming chapters, Bakewell does go a little back and forth in time, as she tends to follow each chapter's topic(s) down their timelines logical paths. In audio, it's sometimes mildly confusing, but lasted only a second or two for me as I made the mental adjustment to chronology.

I'm sure I won't mind the going back and forth but I'm glad I sourced a text copy in addition to the audio. I had to read some parts several times last night... I'm still not sure of how to practically apply Heidegger's concepts.

I found Husserl's work much more applicable, as well as some of Sartre's earlier work; I just couldn't find anything in Heidegger that worked for me, and the more I learned about him the less inclined I was to make the effort. Not at all objective of me, but there it is.

Agreed. I'm having issues with Heidegger's ideas, too, and this is still the basic stage before he goes into sycophant mode...
