What Becomes of the Human after Humanism. What Becomes of the Human after Humanism? Heidegger and Derrida Rex Gilliland, Does the human being have a future? Is it a concept that has outlived its usefulness, or does it offer unique and indispensable resources that we have hardly begun to consider? In the latter half of the twentieth century, the status of the human being was a pervasive issue in both continental and Anglo-American thought. Although the humanism/anti-humanism debate in postwar France gravitated toward these extremes, perhaps there are still resources to be found there that will assist us in formulating a more subtle conception of the human being.
Although it is commonly held that Heidegger marginalizes the human being in his later thought by turning his focus from Dasein to being, the “Letter on ‘Humanism’” shows that the shift, if there is one, is not nearly so extreme. If it is clear that the human being remains a central theme for Heidegger, its status still remains in question. Humanism, Derrida, and the new humanities. Deridā un humānisms.

Mark OlssenUniversity of Surrey Paper presented at the British Educational Research Association Annual Conference, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, 11-13 September 2003 A critique is not a matter of saying that things are not right as they are. It is a matter of pointing out on what kinds of assumptions, what kinds of familiar, unchallenged, unconsidered modes of thought, the practices that we accept rest.... Criticism is a matter of flushing out that thought and trying to change it: to show that things are not as self-evident as we believed, to see that what is accepted as self-evident will no longer be accepted as such. Practising criticism is a matter of making facile gestures difficult. Critique, for Foucault, aims at identifying and exposing the unrecognised forms of power in people's lives, to expose and move beyond the forms in which we are entrapped in relation to the diverse ways that we act and think.
