Description of this Book

The works of Heidegger are perhaps the most influential in contemporary philosophy, yet they are not only least readily understood, but even what `understanding' means in this context is usually overlooked. This book addresses Heidegger's dense prose seeking an understanding of `language' which leads to a journey that allows the emergence of the terrain revealed when travelling with the philosopher. This book offers an experience of walking with Heidegger when considering `language', but refuses a conceptual analysis of the text. As such, it offers a profound experience, and yet refuses to reduce Heidegger's texts to simple formulae. The texts used include Heidegger's magnum opus, Being and Time, and many of his essays and lectures, as well as drawing on the writings of other thinkers.

Simon Young received his first degree in Philosophy from the University of London before completing a PhD at the University of Exeter, UK. He is an independent researcher specialising in using a Heideggerian basis to examine disparate subject areas. He is currently working on a book that will examine and contrast the mode of thought that allowed Nazism against the thinking called for within Heideggerianism.
