Heidegger and the Greeks by Drew A. Hyland

Book Description

Martin Heidegger's sustained reflection on Greek thought has been increasingly recognized as a decisive feature of his own philosophical development. At the same time, this important philosophical meeting has generated considerable controversy and disagreement concerning the radical originality of Heidegger's view of the Greeks and their place in his groundbreaking thinking. In Heidegger and the Greeks, an international group of distinguished philosophers sheds light on the issues raised by Heidegger's encounter and engagement with the Greeks. The careful and nuanced essays brought together here shed light on how core philosophical concepts such as phenomenology, existentialism, hermeneutics, and ethics are understood today. For readers at all levels, this volume is an invitation to continue the important dialogue with Greek thinking that was started and stimulated by Heidegger. Contributors are Claudia Baracchi, Walter A. Brogan, Gunter Figal, Gregory Fried, Francisco J. Gonzalez, Drew A. Hyland, John Panteleimon Manoussakis, William J. Richardson, John Sallis, Dennis J. Schmidt, and Peter Warnek.

Books By Author Drew A. Hyland

Plato and the Question of Beauty by Drew A. Hyland Plato and the Question of Beauty, Paperback (May 2008)

Reveals the intimate connection between beauty and the philosophical life. What Plato meant by beauty is not easily characterized, this work shows that Plato ultimately gives up on the possibility of a definition. It provides a serious investigation into the meaning of beauty and places it at the very heart of philosophy.

Origins of Philosophy by Drew A. Hyland Origins of Philosophy, Paperback (December 1973)

Traces the origins of philosophy from its earliest roots in Babylonian and Homeric-Hesiodic mythology to its flowering in the Pre-Socratic imagination. Using selections from the "Epic of Gilgamesh", Hesiod, Homer, Pythagoras, Zeno, Plato, and Socrates, the author argues against what he calls the 'historical approach' to the origin of philosophy.
