About this product
- DescriptionHeidegger's thinking in the decades following the publication of Being and Time is often deemed irreconcilable with that work. Critics contrast the tion of resoluteness in Being and Time with Heidegger's post-war account of releasement in an attempt to establish a discrepancy between the allegedly voluntarist humanism of his early work and the supposedly 'anti-humanist' thinking of his later work. By contrast, Mahon O'Brien argues for the structural and thematic coherence of Heidegger's movement from authenticity to the search for an authentic free relation to the world - as captured by the term releasement . By demonstrating the structural and thematic unity of Heidegger's thought in its entirety, O'Brien paves the way for a more measured and philosophically grounded understanding of the issues at stake in the Heidegger controversy.
- Author BiographyMahon O'Brien is currently IRCHSS Research Fellow in the School of Philosophy at University College Dublin, Ireland. He is the author of Heidegger and Authenticity: From Resoluteness to Releasement (Continuum 2011).
