Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
...the editors of this book have made a commendable effort in compiling thought-provoking essays on the responses to Heidegger's ideas of some of the most important figures in late-modern French thought.— Symposium

"An indispensable resource for anyone wanting a serious engagement not only with contemporary French philosophy but also with the thought of Heidegger. The studies in this collection are not merely retrospective reflections; they are themselves original contributions to the ongoing French reception of Heidegger's thought."— David Michael Kleinberg-Levin, author of Before the Voice of Reason: Echoes of Responsibility in Merleau-Ponty's Ecology and Levinas's Ethics
