This study provides a masterful exegesis of central texts in which Heidegger presents his reading of Aristotle s thought Anyone seeking a thoughtful elaboration of Heidegger s positive reading of Aristotle s philosophy need look no further. Ancient Philosophy
Brogan provides an especially clear exposition to parts of Heidegger s Aristotle interpretation. Any serious student of Heidegger should give this book careful scrutiny for the way in which it gives fresh meaning to core issues in Heidegger s understanding of phusis and techne, the ontological difference, Heidegger s understanding of the Greeks generally, and especially how Aristotle s ontology wrestles with the problems inherited from his predecessors. Review of Metaphysics
This is, by far, the most extensive study of the dialogue between Heidegger and Aristotle, and one that will be consulted as the authoritative study on the topic. It takes giant steps to challenge the usual reading of Aristotle, and does so in a persuasive way, which partisans of the more traditional view will ignore only at their peril. Drew A. Hyland, author of Questioning Platonism: Continental Interpretations of Plato"

Like all other works on Heidegger and ... (Plato, the Pre-Socratics) this work is not meant to constitute a Heideggerian confrontation between these two giants of philosophy, rather it's meant to set the ground work for one such future study. It's not the result of a hyperactive researcher, as most published philosophy books are these days with hundreds of endnotes, footnotes, and parenthetical remarks; Brogan discusses few thinkers other than Heidegger and Aristotle. It doesn't provide an analysis or evaluation either, nor does the author introduce himself into the arguments like unfortunately most authors do. He says as much in the conclusion- this work is strictly an explication. The book is one place to find what interested Heidegger in Aristotle and how it influenced his thoughts. It's straightforward good traditional scholarship.Read more ›
