Editorial Reviews

Review

"As the first commentary on Being and Time in English to give as much respect to French readings of the book as to analytic readings, William Large’s accessible introduction deserves to be widely read." —Robert Bernasconi, University of Memphis

From the Publisher

"There is a real need for this book for those taking courses in existentialism, Continental philosophy, and phenomenology." --Peter Atterton, San Diego State University

Format: Paperback
In a downloadable iTunes UC Berkeley lecture from 2007, Professor Hubert Dreyfus makes a startling claim: he feels Martin Heidegger's influence on American philosophy has increased and Ludwig Wittgenstein's has waned. Anyone who studied Analytic Philosophy in the 1990s during Wittgenstein-mania will likely drop their mandible at this claim. First at the mere notion of sagging influence (which is likely disputable), and second, and most shockingly, at who his influence has supposedly sagged to. Historically, Heidegger has not been embraced by the Analytic school. "Anathema" may even sum up his general reception in that camp (reference his infamous "debate" with Rudolph Carnap). And though both famous philosophers in question hail from Germany, they have remained largely entrenched in opposite, and warring, philosophical schools. The divide originates within the grand schism between Analytic and Continental philosophy. Scholars tend to subsume Heidegger in the latter school and Wittgenstein in the former. These two sides rarely speak and when they do fur may fly. But times change, and some in the Analytic school have turned towards the once exiled Heidegger to explore epistemological problems. As such, Heidegger studies in English, at least in philosophy departments, usually examine his work with an Analytic attitude. Enter this deceptively small book called, appropriately, "Heidegger's Being and Time." In the introduction author William Large suggests he wants to provide an alternative for the Analytic attitude towards Heidegger. "This present book," he writes, "comes from a serious engagement with the French Heideggerians for many years, and I have indicated what some of the debates are within this reception in the end notes to the chapters.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
I have read a few introductory text's on Heidegger's being and time and although this Large's book is not the worst it certainly is not what I regard as being fully adequate.On first examination it looks like a concise and clear guide.However this is not the case.There are areas that are clear but there are also areas that are quite unclear.The first chapter dealing with Heidegger's development away from Husserlian phenomenology is unclear.It could have been stated quite clearly in one to two pages but instead was mostly waffle.Large also falls down when explaining guilt and conscience on page 82.Perhaps there was a typing error but he states with regards to throwness and projection that 'I am not responsible for what is not me and for what is 'not yet'' whereas on page 81 he says correctly ,from a Heideggerian view of the indebtedness of throwness, the very opposite.
The strong point is that it gives a very 'French' flavour to 'Being and Time' emphasising why Heidegger had to use the language of 'Being-in-the-World'.
