Even if

  • You’ve never studied philosophy before
  • You’ve tried to read this book and failed 3, 4, 5+ times
  •  You don’t know who Heidegger is...

You’ll be able to experience deep change through Millerman School’s course on Being and Time.

(Note: this course uses the Stambaugh/Schmidt translation, shown here).

Hear what some of the students have said...


"I left both less confused and more interested in a subject that I had found quite frustrating just before."


"I’ve taken no less than 5 courses on Heidegger at both the undergrad and grad levels, and Millerman’s intro is easily and by far the best I’ve encountered."


"The guy was able to explain Heidegger."

Discover a deeper source of meaning...

Have you ever felt like there is something more to life? Perhaps you’ve even had a deep religious experience that you couldn’t put into words. How can you describe what you experienced?

In this course you’ll discover the same thing Zen practitioners and others did when studying Heidegger. You’ll discover how to put your experience into words. To explain it to yourself, and others if you so choose. To truly understand it.

Haven’t gone through a religious experience or touched the deeper side of life?

Even more reason to take this course. Heidegger aimed at what he called "the essential transformation of the human being." He isn't just giving you theory. He's walking you through a sort of conversion that snaps you out of a stupor and wakes you up to your true nature. There's a reason Heidegger has been read and admired by theologians and mystics of all faiths...there's something that his fundamental ontology brings out that rings true to the deepest human experiences. It's time you discover why.

A hugely influential thinker

After taking this four-hour, course you’ll understand Martin Heidegger’s Being and Time. And you'll start to understand all the other people Heidegger influenced, including:

Leo Strauss

Alexander Dugin

Hannah Arendt

Karl Löwith

Jacques Derrida

Giorgio Agamben

Emmanuel Levinas

Richard Rorty

Werner Erhard

Hubert Dreyfus

Hans Jonas

...and many others.

You’ll undergo the same transformation that others have gone through in reading Being and Time. Dasein, anxiety, authenticity, being-towards-death, historicity...these won't just be jargon words for you anymore. You'll know what Heidegger meant by them and you'll be able to relate them to your own life. The biggest payoff in reading Heidegger is the "unshakeable joy" that comes from understanding.

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.
