About this product
- DescriptionHeidegger's later philosophy has often been regarded as a lapse into unintelligible mysticism. While t igring its deep and difficult complexities, Julian Young's book explains in simple and straightforward language just what it is all about. It examines Heidegger's identification of loss of 'the gods', the violence of techlogy, and humanity's 'homelessness' as symptoms of the destitution of modernity, and his tion that overcoming 'oblivion of Being' is the essence of a turning to a post-destitute, genuinely post-modern existence. Young argues that Heidegger's conception of such an overcoming is profoundly fruitful with respect to the ancient quest to discover the nature of the good life. His book will be an invaluable resource for both students and scholars of Heidegger's works.
