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.
