Review

"One reason to welcome a book on Heidegger on mathematics is that it should help retire a pair of stale falsehoods: that Heidegger's philosophy, and so-called continental philosophy more broadly, is inimical to rationality, science, logic, and mathematics; and that commentators on Heidegger revel in and propagate such a rift. Unfortunately Roubach's book has only mixed success in undermining the second of these...Roubach's book has other faults. His arguments occasionally confuse Heidegger's reports of other people's views with his own...Roubach makes intriguing suggestions about the influence of Cantor's, Dedekind's and Brouwer's work on Heidegger...But Roubach's book does not do enough to illuminate these connections, and it generally misconstrues their place in Heidegger's overall ontology." - Stephan Käufer, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews, September 20, 2008 (Stephan Käufer Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews)
