The ideas of Martin Heidegger, one of the most important philosophers of the twentieth century, have had a profound influence on work in literary theory and aesthetics, as well as on mainstream philosophy. This book offers a clear and concise guide to Heidegger’s notoriously complex writings, while giving special attention to his major work Being and Time. Richard McDonough adds historical context by exploring Heidegger’s intellectual roots in German idealism and ancient Greek philosophy, and introduces readers to the key themes in Heidegger’s work including Dasein, Existenz, time, conscience, death, and phenomenology. This book, which also considers Heidegger’s controversial ethics (or «anti-ethics») and politics, would make an excellent text for both introductory and advanced undergraduate courses on existentialism, phenomenology, continental philosophy, and Heidegger himself.

From the Back Cover:

"As scholarship on Martin Heidegger’s thought goes, Richard M. McDonough’s book is unique in its clarity and accessibility. It constitutes one of the few attempts to convey the depth of Heidegger’s Being and Time to the nonspecialist. McDonough’s argument that Heidegger construes being as a dynamic, ‘emergent’ event preserves the ontological thrust of Heidegger’s project, while providing a straightforward avenue by which those from the Anglo-American tradition can begin to transverse the labyrinth of Heidegger’s hermeneutic phenomenology." Frank H. Schalow, Department of Philosophy, University of New Orleans

"This book gives a clear and concise account of Heidegger’s basic ideas in Being and Time. It is both an introductory text and a work of scholarship, so that the Heidegger beginner as well as the more advanced student can profit from it. Further, it neither attempts to denigrate Heidegger nor to assimilate him to some trendy philosophical view." Wolfe Mays, Manchester Metropolitan University; Editor, Journal for the British Society of Phenomenology

About the Author:

The Author: Richard M. McDonough received his B.A., summa cum laude, major in philosophy, minors in mathematics and chemistry, from the University of Pittsburgh in 1971, and his Ph.D. in philosophy from Cornell University in 1975. The author of The Argument of the Tractatus (1986), he has published about forty articles and ten book reviews in philosophy, psychology, and linguistics in internationally refereed journals. In 1999 he edited a special edition of the journal Idealistic Studies on the topic of Wittgenstein and cognitive science. He was awarded a Woodrow Wilson Graduate Fellowship (1971-72) and a National Science Foundation Graduate Fellowship (1971-74). He is listed in numerous Marquis Who’s Who publications, including Marquis Who’s Who in the World; in Science and Engineering; in Education; in America; and in Asia. McDonough has taught philosophy at Bates College and the National University of Singapore; both philosophy and psychology at the University of Tulsa; philosophy at the University Putra Malaysia; and both philosophy and the humanities in his present position at the Overseas Family College in the Republic of Singapore. He is currently working on a book on Plato, a book on Kant, and several articles in philosophy.
