Overview

In recent years posthumous publications have shed significant light on Heidegger's sources, particularly on the importance of Augustine's analysis of the consciousness of time. One significant discover within these publications has been the 1930 lecture on time and the recent translation of Phenomenology of the Religious Life. These 13 essays, contributed by scholars writing from the perspective of Augustine, Heidegger, or both, detail Heidegger's sources and themes as they relate to Augustine, in particularly as Heidegger interpreted Confessiones X, his thought on hermeneutic phenomenology and gnosticism, the two men's convergence and dissimilarity on desire and questioning, and the what related work of Jonas, Arendt, Gadamer and Eckhart has to say about what was a productive if sometimes adversarial relationship. The text is in English, French and German. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
