Overview

In this major contribution to the understanding of Heidegger (and rare attempt to bridge the schism between traditions of analytic and Continental philosophy), Cristina Lafont applies the core methodology of analytic philosophy--language analysis--to Heidegger's work, providing both a clearer exegesis and a powerful critique of his approach to the subject of language. The book first appeared in German but has been substantially revised for the English edition. It will appeal to serious students of arguably the most influential philosopher of the twentieth century.
