Dasein Disclosed: John Haugeland's Heidegger

Overview

The author of discipline-defining studies of human cognition and artificial intelligence, John Haugeland was a charismatic, highly original voice in the contemporary forum of Anglo-American analytic philosophy. At his death in 2010, he left behind an unfinished manuscript, more than a decade in the making, intended as a summation of his life-long engagement with one of the twentieth century’s most influential philosophical tracts, Heidegger’s Being and Time (1927).

Overview

The author of discipline-defining studies of human cognition and artificial intelligence, John Haugeland was a charismatic, highly original voice in the contemporary forum of Anglo-American analytic philosophy. At his death in 2010, he left behind an unfinished manuscript, more than a decade in the making, intended as a summation of his life-long engagement with one of the twentieth century’s most influential philosophical tracts, Heidegger’s Being and Time (1927). Dasein Disclosed brings together in a single volume the writings of a man widely acknowledged as one of Heidegger’s preeminent and most provocative interpreters.

A labyrinth of notoriously difficult ideas and terminology, Being and Time has inspired copious commentary. Not content merely to explain, Haugeland aspired to a sweeping reevaluation of Heidegger’s magnum opus and its conception of human life as Dasein—a reevaluation focused on Heidegger’s effort to reawaken philosophically dormant questions of what it means “to be.” Interpreting Dasein unconventionally as “the living of a living way of life,” Haugeland put involvement in a shared world, rather than individual persons or their experience, at the heart of Heidegger’s phenomenology of understanding and truth. Individuality, Haugeland insists, emerges in the call to take responsibility for a collective way of being in the world. He traces this thought to Heidegger’s radical conclusion that one does not truly understand philosophical concepts unless that understanding changes how one lives.

As illuminating as it is iconoclastic, Dasein Disclosed is not just Haugeland’s Heidegger—it is a major contribution to philosophy in its own right.

Editorial Reviews

Robert B. Brandom
John Haugeland was not able to complete the book detailing his master reading of the constructive portions of Heidegger's Sein und Zeit, but the present book is as close as we can get. Dasein Disclosed is the deepest and most interesting work on Heidegger in a generation. It will be invaluable to all who care about the topic--not only Heidegger specialists, but also those working in the analytic tradition who care about the philosophical issues Haugeland's Heidegger addresses.
Steven Crowell
John Haugeland was one of the most creative and acute philosophers of his generation. Joseph Rouse's careful edition of Haugeland's writings on Heidegger--including his incomplete, yet fascinating, commentary on Being and Time--provides a comprehensive view of one of the great philosophical encounters of recent times. Anyone interested in issues in metaphysics, philosophy of science, and philosophy of mind will benefit from Haugeland's meticulous, clear, and original interpretations of Heidegger's revolutionary ideas--interpretations in which Haugeland's own genius is everywhere apparent.
Brian Cantwell Smith
It was John Haugeland's lifelong project to unveil Heidegger's philosophy to Anglo-American sensibilities. In this volume his profound interpretation finally comes fully into view. Manifesting the brilliance, depth, and care for which Haugeland is renowned in the philosophy of mind and artificial intelligence, Dasein Disclosed deftly reveals the rigorous standards to which he has always held accounts of self, mind, and intentionality. An immense gift, not just for Heidegger scholars, but for all students of philosophy and mind.
David R. Cerbone
Haugeland is a philosopher of considerable standing across a wide spectrum of philosophical issues ranging from the philosophy of mind and artificial intelligence to metaphysics to the history of philosophy. He is also, to my mind, one of the most important and provocative readers of Heidegger. Haugeland's work on Heidegger is especially valuable owing to his stature within analytic circles--if anyone can get analytic philosophers to take Heidegger seriously, Haugeland is the one to do so.
Times Literary Supplement - Taylor Carman
The publication of Dasein Disclosed is a major scholarly event, gathering together as it does in a single volume John Haugeland's immensely important and astonishingly innovative interpretation of Being and Time. Like Heidegger himself, Haugeland challenges our most cherished, seemingly obvious conceptions of being, time, meaning, thought, society, existence, and death--and of what Heidegger's widely misunderstood magnum opus has to say about them. Haugeland was not just one of the deepest, most perceptive readers of Being and Time; he was a profoundly original thinker in his own right. Dasein Disclosed is a landmark achievement in Heidegger studies and a major contribution to contemporary philosophy.
