CD/mp3 118, the conclusion of the first part of the fourth lecture on existentialism. Corresponds to CWL 18, pp. 280-84. The early part of the lecture either was not recorded or the recording has not survived. The present recording lasts only about 15 minutes. Sponsored by Thomas J. Farrell. Attention is drawn to the broadening of horizon in fields that affect us, where more is at stake than new concepts, principles, methods, topics, or approaches. There is a revolution in the subject, a conversion. The existential gap arises when the reality of the subject lies beyond his own horizon. The fundamental problems in philosophy arise when subjects do not know themselves.
