Martin Heidegger by George Steiner
Book DescriptionAcquaintance with the work of Martin Heidegger is indispensable to an understanding of contemporary thought and culture. His work has had a profound influence on a number of disciplines, including theology, Sartrean existentialism, linguistics, Hellenic studies, the structuralist and hermeneutic schools of textual interpretation, literary theory, and literature itself. With characteristic lucidity and style, George Steiner makes this philosopher's immensely difficult body of work accessible to the general reader. The breadth of Steiner's learning and interests also allows him to place Heidegger in a broader Continental literary-cultural context. In a new Introduction, Steiner addresses language and philosophy and the rise of Nazism.
