Editorial Reviews

David Lewis Schaefer
Both erudite and passionate, Gregory Smith's Martin Heidegger demonstrates the critical importance of Heidegger's thought for understanding our present philosophical dilemmas and for charting a genuinely human future. While fully acknowledging Heidegger's terrible political and moral errors and misdeeds, Smith at the same time rescues the profoundest level of his thinking from both its partisan detractors and its "postmodernist" vulgarizers. Smith's book merits the attention of all serious students of political philosophy.

The writings of German philosopher Martin Heidegger (1889-1976) are only just now diffusing beyond specialists and devotees; indeed the first English translation of the transcript of his deposition to the Committee on De-Nazification is included in the volume. Nevertheless, scholars of education and philosophy from around the world begin the process of clarifying his contribution to education. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
