About the Authors
  • This major new study of Heidegger is the first to examine in detail the concept of existential truth that Heidegger developed in the 1920s. Daniel Dahlstrom offers a critical focus on the genesis, nature, and viability of Heidegger's radical reconceptualization. The book has several distinctive and innovative features. First, it is the only study that attempts to understand the logical dimension of Heidegger's thought in its historical context. Second, no other book-length treatment explores the breadth and depth of Heidegger's confrontation with Husserl, his erstwhile mentor. Third, the book demonstrates that Heidegger's deconstruction of Western thinking occurs on three interconnected fronts: truth, being, and time.

    Reviews & endorsements

    "[Dahlstrom's] treatment of the logical implications of Heidegger's philosophy is very detailed and systematic..." American Philosophical Association

    "...ambitious, learned, and highly informative contribution to the interpretation of Heidegger's philosophy..." The Thomist

    "Daniel Dahlstrom has written a highly accomplished and detailed scholarly account of the scope and consequences of Heidegger's radical engagement during the 1920s with 'the logical prejudice,' that is, the assumption 'that assertions and their kin are the site of truth'.... Dahlstrom's study does an impressive job of presenting Heidegger's early conception of truth more clearly and completely than any other study to date. It also provides an illuminating account of how Heidegger's project both diverges from and remains close to Husserl's phenomenology. It is a solid piece of scholarship that should be widely read and discussed by scholars, critics, and students of Heidegger." The Journal of Speculative Philosophy

    "Anyone trying to understand Heidegger's doctrines regarding truth and logic - and the implications of those doctrines for the often problematic status of Heidegger's own philosophical enterprise - will find this book highly rewarding." The Philosophical Review

    "Fried makes an important is important that this study is now available...A major philosophical study of the early Heidegger." Albion

    " excellent piece of work--well written, well argued and well supported. It is a significant contribution to the increasing body of scholarly literature concerning the development of Heidegger's early thought." - International Studies in Philosophy
