Overview

Thinking with Heidegger: Displacements by Miguel de Beistegui

"... a real philosophical page-turner, a book that is difficult to
put down, even given the complexity of its issues." -- Jeffrey
Powell

"This is a fine addition to existing books on
Heidegger's thought.... The author has both a command of Heidegger and of how best
to elucidate him to a contemporary audience." -- David
Wood

In Thinking with Heidegger, Miguel de Beistegui looks into
the essence of Heidegger's thought and engages the philosopher's transformative
thinking with contemporary Western culture. Rather than isolate and explore a single
theme or aspect of Heidegger, de Beistegui chooses multiple points of entry that
unfold from the same question or idea. De Beistegui examines Heidegger's
translations of Greek philosophy and his interpretations and displacements of
anthropology, ethics and politics, science, and aesthetics. Thinking with Heidegger
proposes fresh answers to some of philosophy's most fundamental questions and
extends Heideggerian discourse into philosophical regions not treated by Heidegger
himself.
