Philosophy 185 - Fall 2007 - One of the most important philosophical works of the twentieth century, Being and Time is both a systematization of the existential insights of Kierkegaard and Nietzsche and a radicalization of Husserl's phenomenological account of intentionality. What results is an original interpretation of the human condition leading to an account of the nature and limitations of philosophical and scientific theory. ...

For those confused where to start, the lectures are in order by date starting with "Being".
The lectures are a bit excessively discursive, but are very clear. The professor has a bias for Heidegger's philosophy, so keep that in mind while listening. This is a great accompaniment for the Macquarie/Robinson translation.
Rambling professor but EXCELLENT
This professor rambles for a good portion of each class. Very distracting. You had to listen to 15 minute of mindless rambling about handouts and his forgetfulness and whatever before he gets to the merits (subject) of the class. But after listening to most of his presentations; he is brilliant and the distractions pale in comparison to what you will take away from this course!
I wish I was in that classroom!
Dreyfus is one of the best Heideggerians today and his work is phenomenal - no pun intended. There is very little rambling actually - mostly at the beginning of the class, first day or two. I really appreciate his "ramblings" otherwise as they raise questions that truly help you understand major but subtle issues in Being and Time, like the difference between possibilities of Being and Dasein's comportment toward its Being in its factical specificity. He's just wonderful. I'm listening to this in the car - on the way to my Heidegger class with Mark Wrathall actually - another brilliant Heideggerian. Download this and you will be one step closer to understanding Being and Time - well at least the Being part of it. Dreyfus never gets to temporality - Division II. You'll have to buy one of his many books for that.
