In Questioning Martin Heidegger, Martin Heideggers Overcoming Metaphysics provides the jumping-off point for a wide-ranging critique and deconstruction of Western metaphysics from the Pre-Socratics and Sophists to Descartes, Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, and Derrida. Besides questioning Martin Heideggers controversial relationship with German National Socialism (Nazism) and the Holocaust, Questioning Martin Heidegger also takes off onto diverse topics like the question of being and the problem of nothingness, the birth of subjectivity and the death of God, and the Kehre and the emergence of a global ecological consciousness. Written in straightforward, jargon-free language, Questioning Martin Heidegger will be stimulating and exciting reading for professional scholars and enthusiastic laypersons, philosophy students and the general public.
