about

"... a real philosophical page-turner, a book that is difficult to put down, even given the complexity of its issues." -Jeffrey Powell

"This is a fine addition to existing books on Heidegger's thought.... The author has both a command of Heidegger and of how best to elucidate him to a contemporary audience." -David Wood

In Thinking with Heidegger, Miguel de Beistegui looks into the essence of Heidegger's thought and engages the philosopher's transformative thinking with contemporary Western culture. Rather than isolate and explore a single theme or aspect of Heidegger, de Beistegui chooses multiple points of entry that unfold from the same question or idea. De Beistegui examines Heidegger's translations of Greek philosophy and his interpretations and displacements of anthropology, ethics and politics, science, and aesthetics. Thinking with Heidegger proposes fresh answers to some of philosophy's most fundamental questions and extends Heideggerian discourse into philosophical regions not treated by Heidegger himself.

Miguel de Beistegui teaches in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Warwick. He is the author of Heidegger and the Political and co-editor (with Simon Sparks) of Philosophy and Tragedy.
