You'll know what you're talking about...
Have you ever wanted to engage in conversations with others and actually understand how they arrived at their thinking, not just in a way where you know what news channel they watch, but deeper than that...getting to the very foundations of what their thinking is built on, and better than they understand it themselves?
Imagine yourself in your next conversation. Your friend starts to tell you all the fears of Artificial Intelligence. Why he thinks it will take over the world and he’s scared to go out during the day.
You easily respond that his understanding of AI is missing an essential part of what it means to be human. What it actually means to be. This point is so important, that famed computer scientist Hubert Dreyfus used this same thinking from his study of Heidegger in his fundamental challenge to the full claims of what Artificial Intelligence could accomplish 30 years ago, fundamentals that are still true in today’s conversation around AI.
As you explain this to your friend. They’re awed by your depth of knowledge and the conversation finally goes deeper...to truly stimulating levels of understanding, instead of the surface level fears you hear in the current thing. Reading Heidegger lets you take the conversation to a more fundamental level. Even your ignorance and uncertainty will become clearer as you master Heidegger's thought.
