Werner Erhard and Martin Heidegger On Being

CHICAGO, IL / ACCESSWIRE, Jun 18, 2020 – (ACN Newswire) – During these challenging times of uncertainty and disruption, we are spending many hours with our attention on what's no longer available to us and what might happen and might not happen. Perhaps for that reason alone, the new book "Speaking Being", has never been more relevant.

"Speaking Being: Werner Erhard, Martin Heidegger, and a New Possibility of Being Human" (Wiley), an Amazon #1 bestseller in Philosophy, is an opportunity to bring our focus to the relatively unexamined world of being.

Professors Bruce Hyde's (PhD) and Drew Kopp's (PhD) highly acclaimed book offers an unprecedented study of the ideas and methods developed by Martin Heidegger, one of the most prominent philosophers of the 20th century, and the ideas of Werner Erhard, the breakthrough thinker who created The Forum program in the 1980s (following his est Training in the 1970s).

Through a comparative side-by-side display and analysis of a transcript of Erhard's Forum, with his ideas and methodology, combined with Heidegger's philosophical ideas, the authors make the power of Erhard's ontological rhetoric and Heidegger's often difficult-for-the-layman ideas available to a wide range of audiences. It brings to life complex yet important new ideas for scholars at work within a variety of academic disciplines, and provides an entry to anyone interested in the possibility of and the access to being for human beings. In accomplishing all of this, what is revealed are new insights into the actual nature of being of human beings, and the opening up of new possibilities for being for human beings.

Jonathan D. Moreno, Professor of Ethics at University of Pennsylvania, said Speaking Being is "powerful, imaginative, frustrating, amusing, threatening, and enlightening – all at the same time. It also has the power to transform your life."

Michael E. Zimmerman, Professor Emeritus, University of Colorado, Boulder stated, "I regard Speaking Being as an enormously important contribution to understanding Heidegger and Erhard. The latter has received far too little serious academic attention, and this book begins to make up for that lack. Moreover, the book's analysis of Heidegger's thought is among the best that I have ever read. I commend this book to all readers without reservation."

99 Problemz Music takes on the Music Industry

MUNICH, Jun 11, 2020 – (ACN Newswire) – German record label 99 Problemz Music has been giving young newcomer artists a chance to prove their talent with the possibility of getting signed. Currently the Munich label has a total of five artists attached to its brand: Hydra, Fake Rayban, R.S., JBP, and Poldi. With their unique approach, these individuals have decided to take the music industry head on, in order to become the success story that society will hear about.



Leopold Karrer (aka Poldi) is one of the few artists who dares to touch on other subjects that listeners can connect with.




Gangster Hip-Hop music has been around since the mid 80's, driven by rappers such as Ice-T and N.W.A during that period of time. Today, music has changed and become more complex as far as composition goes, although the lyrical aspect has become more predictable when looking at the creativity of most songs. The main topics still revolve around the gangster lifestyle till this day. This is where artists like Poldi are finding their place and providing a long needed switch-up for listeners.

Rap and its culture were founded on certain principles, which include being "real". The main problem is that most of today's rap music only mentions having large sums of money, drugs, and women. This may be appropriate for some listeners, but others won't connect on the same level with the artist. Poldi is one of the few artists that dares to touch on other subjects that humans can connect with.

Leopold Karrer (aka Poldi) says, "It's not about showing off. I want people to feel as if we're on the same level and have similar issues. There wouldn't be a point in talking about a lifestyle I don't care about. I want people to know that I actually care about my listeners and the subjects I speak upon. This provides a special connection between the listener and the artist, which bragging about my wealth just won't cut."

This approach stands out from many current rappers. Poldi has turned the gangster into a gentleman approach, which feels like a powerful change in the industry.

Only a handful of German rappers are producing music on a similar wavelength. Edo Saiya, RIN and Lance Butters, are a few of those that state their mindset throughout their music without showing off what they have.

99 Problemz Music has generated over 100,000 streams on the various music platforms. This is a tremendous amount for these young artists from Germany. The label's plans currently include connecting its artists with major labels and building a stronger connection within the industry.
