In this study Professor Richardson introduces the existential phenomenology of Martin Heidegger, particularly as developed in his major work, "Being and Time". Richardson's object is to show how Heidegger's ideas bear on the central problem in epistemology, that of how we are able to have objective knowledge. He presupposes no familiarity with Heidegger and adopts a practical approach to introduce the concepts and claims of his intricate system. From this, Richardson constructs arguments clarifying Heidegger's contribution to the theory of knowledge and showing why he thought the search for knowledge of the way things are in themselves is misguided.
