Martin Heidegger is one of the twentieth century’s most influential, but also most cryptic and controversial philosophers. His early fusion of phenomenology with existentialism inspired Sartre and many others, and his later critique of modern rationality inspired Derrida and still others. This introduction covers the whole of Heidegger’s thought and is ideal for anyone coming to his work for the first time.

John Richardson centres his account on Heidegger’s persistent effort to change the very kind of understanding or truth we seek. Beginning with an overview of Heidegger’s life and work, he sketches the development of Heidegger’s thought up to the publication of Being and Time. He shows how that book takes up Husserl’s method of phenomenology and adapts it. He then introduces and assesses the key arguments of Being and Time under three headings―pragmatism, existentialism, and temporality―its three levels of analysis of human experience.

Subsequent chapters introduce Heidegger’s later philosophy, including his turn towards a historical account of being, and new ideas about how we need to ‘think’ to get the truth about it; his influential writings on language, art, and poetry, and their role in the Western history of being; and his claim that this history has culminated in a technological relation to things that is deeply problematic, above all in the way it excludes the divine. The final chapter looks at Heidegger’s profound influence on several intellectual movements ranging from phenomenology to existentialism to postmodernism.

A much-needed and refreshing introduction to this major figure, Heidegger is ideal reading for anyone coming to his work for the first time and will interest and stimulate students and scholars alike.

Review:

"This brilliant book should convince mainstream philosophers that Heidegger is a thinker they cannot ignore or dismiss. Stunningly clear, it serves up existential insights on a silver platter." - Iain Thomson, University of New Mexico, USA

"Equally remarkable for its erudition and clarity, this book will prove invaluable for students and scholars looking for guidance through Heidegger’s early and later thought. Richardson’s discussion of Being and Time is particularly ingenious, showing how it progresses through the increasingly profound layers of pragmatism, existentialism, and temporality. I highly recommend it." - Lee Braver, Hiram College, USA

"Here’s a book on Heidegger that instructs the uninitiated, meets Heidegger’s opponents with rigor and fairness, and does all this with commendable clarity and thoroughness." - Albert Borgmann, University of Montana, USA

Synopsis:

Martin Heidegger ranks alongside Wittgenstein as one of the twentieth century's most influential yet cryptic and controversial philosophers. A towering figure in the schools of phenomenology and existential, his work inspired Sartre, Merleau-Ponty and Derrida. This introduction covers the whole of Heidegger's work and is ideal for anyone coming to his work for the first time. John Richardson centers his introduction around the two topics that characterize Heidegger's work as a whole and that form the title of his most important work: being and time. Beginning with an overview of Heidegger's life and work, he explains the development of Heidgger's thought up to the publication of "Being and Time". He then introduces and assesses the key arguments of Being and Time under three key headings: pragmatism; existentialism; and the themes of time and being.He also explains how Heidegger departed from Husserl's understanding of phenomenology itself.

Subsequent chapters introduce Heidegger's later philosophy, in particular his turn towards an historicized account of being; his influential writings on art, poetry and language and his view that art and literature are essential to an evolving, cultural understanding of human being; and his theory that being is expressed above all in technology and science which problematically 'en frames' much of our understanding and action. The final chapter considers Heidegger's profound influence on a number of different intellectual movements from existentialism to post modernism and how his work was taken up and criticized by subsequent philosophers. A much-needed and refreshing introduction to this major figure, Heidegger is ideal reading for anyone coming to his work for the first time and will interest and stimulate students and scholars alike.
