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.Read more ›
