About the Authors
  • Heidegger's later philosophy has often been regarded as a lapse into unintelligible mysticism. While not ignoring its deep and difficult complexities, Julian Young's book explains in simple and straightforward language just what it is all about. It examines Heidegger's identification of loss of 'the gods', the violence of technology, and humanity's 'homelessness' as symptoms of the destitution of modernity, and his notion that overcoming 'oblivion of Being' is the essence of a turning to a post-destitute, genuinely post-modern existence. Young argues that Heidegger's conception of such an overcoming is profoundly fruitful with respect to the ancient quest to discover the nature of the good life. His book will be an invaluable resource for both students and scholars of Heidegger's works.

    • Tackles the formidably difficult - and imperfectly understood - later philosophy of Heidegger in a straightforward way that will be very welcome to student readers
    • Young writes clearly and accessibly and does not descend into impenetrable 'Heideggerese' as many devotees do
    • Scholars as well as students will be interested in his views because of his strong reputation in the field
