Hermeneutics of Herdegger and Social World

Guest lecture held by Sociology Master Program on January 16, 2010 was started from 10.15 a.m. with the theme “Hermeneutics of Herdegger and Social World”. It was delivered by Prof. Dr. Eko Armada Riyanto and attended by ± 120 students of Sociology Master Program, Social and Political Science Doctoral Program, Sociology Undergraduate Program, and several Graduate Program lecturers. The event was opened by Vice Director I Prof. Dr. Syamsul Arifin, M.Si. and guided by the Kaprodi. Vina Salviana. Prof. Armada delivered his lecture entitled "Berfilsafat dalam Martin Heidegger 'Being and Time' ”. Prof. Armada presented his lecture on 28 page-handout not only with his mind, but also with his heart. It was because Heidegger is a philosopher who suggests us to admire the richness of reality in a sophisticated way. Hermeneutics tells that meaning of human's rationality will become narrow and parochial if it is led into terminology. Although it is not exactly similar, in Indonesian, being or Sein can be transalted into mengada or ada. In Heidegger's monumental book, “Being and Time” is an effort to formulate problem direction of metaphisics and science, a shopisticated massive effort. The guest lecture became warmer when there were five participants asking good questions. The lecturre was closed right exactly at 12.30 p.m.
