Overview

In this volume, Charles M. Sherover argues that there is a single, substantial line of development traceable from the work of Leibniz through Kant and Royce to Heidegger. Sherover traces a movement from deep within the roots of German idealism through Royce's American pragmatism to the ethical ramifications of Heidegger's existential phenomenology; he then provides an analysis of the neglected ethical and political implications of Heidegger's Being and Time. The essays lead finally to Sherover's own view of the self as a member of a moral and political community.
