Bert Dreyfus reflects on his life and work

When I started studying with Fernando Flores, I came into contact with the work of Bert Dreyfus who teaches Philosophy at UC Berkeley. Bert is best known for his work on Heidegger and his critique of Artificial Intelligence. In the attached document, a transcription of an interview done as part of UCB’s Conversation with History program, he reflects on the paths taken and not in his life.

Those who know his work (and those who don’t) may find this a rewarding read. His thoughts on having a calling in life are particularly illuminating for the non-philosophers among us.

The interview is here.
