10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Rex Styzens on May 16, 2012
Format: Paperback
No popular audience exists for the work of Martin Heidegger. Yet the implications of his ideas do lend themselves to popular topics. In the mainstream media daily are stories about how the 'mind' does this and 'consciousness' does that; we have magazines titled "Self," while grave doubts exist about whether that word means anything. Such conceptualizations now, since Heidegger, come under the rubric of quaint, antique, and, one of these days though not likely soon, obsolete.

That is a radical development and explaining how such a change happens is not easy. Discussions of Heidegger's work are usually confined to high-level philosophical debate. One exception is the topic of his political stumbling, thinking he could turn Hitler into his student. That practical blunder is sometimes used to discount the significance of his philosophy and avoid the hard work of understanding what Heidegger offers.

This volume does include commentary on the infamy of Heidegger's dalliance with the Nazis. More so, it tackles his permanent and lasting contribution to the advancement of philosophy. With thirteen separate articles plus the editor's Introduction, this volume can serve for those interested in a general overview. The articles are not written for a popular audience. The authors are leading scholars of philosophy who were assigned specific topics to allow them to avoid the elaborate and interwoven intricacies of the scholarly discussion currently underway. So rather than written for their peers, they appeal to a more general understanding. Not easy reading. Still, not mountains of philosophical jargon.
