Full Product Description

Martin Heidegger (1889–1976) is one of the greatest conundrums in the modern philosophical world, by turns inspiring and mind-bogglingly frustrating. In this critical introduction S. J. McGrath offers not a comprehensive summary of Heidegger but a series of incisive takes on Heidegger’s thought, leading readers to a point from which they can begin or continue their own relationship with him.

McGrath discusses not only Heidegger’s phenomenology and ontology, for which he is most famous, but also his ethics and theology. In his preface McGrath says, “If in this book I take the trouble to point out something essentially wrong with Heidegger’s philosophy, it is only because there is so much that is right about it.” The book ends with a thoughtful explanation of why McGrath himself, though an admirer, is not a Heideggerian.
