Editorial Reviews

Gregory Fried
Questioning Martin Heidegger is a fresh look at an often overlooked text by Martin Heidegger: ‘Overcoming Metaphysics.’ Those seeking a positive approach to the major Heideggerian themes—the questions of being, of ‘the subject,’ of nihilism, of technology, and of the overcoming of metaphysics—will find much to consider and new avenues for thinking. The book also offers a new perspective on what’s called ‘The Heidegger Controversy’: Martin Heidegger’s involvement with German National Socialism.
