Excerpts and More

The thirteen essays in this volume represent the most sustained investigation, in any language, of the connections between Heidegger's thought and the tradition of transcendental philosophy inaugurated by Kant. This collection examines Heidegger's stand on central themes of transcendental philosophy: subjectivity, judgment, intentionality, truth, practice, and idealism. Several essays in the volume also explore hitherto hidden connections between Heidegger's later "post-metaphysical" thinking—where he develops a "topological" approach that draws as much upon poetry as upon the philosophical tradition—and the transcendental project of grasping the conditions that make experience of a meaningful world possible. This volume will interest philosophers in the continental tradition, where Heidegger's thought has long had a central role, as well as those many philosophers in the analytic tradition whose own approach to knowledge, semantics, and philosophy of mind traces its roots to Kant.

"[Transcendental Heidegger is] the beginning of a conversation among the growing number of Anglophone scholars interested in Heidegger's methodology and metaphysics and in transcendental philosophy more generally. The multiple points of view and quality scholarship on offer, however, are enough to encourage anyone interested in these issues to join in the conversation and help to continue the project of properly disclosing the transcendental Heidegger."

—Nate Zuckerman, Continental Philosophy Review

"Transcendental Heidegger rolls out some of the biggest guns of analytic Heideggerianiam. There are excellent essays by Robert Pippin, Herman Philipse, Mark Okrent, Cristina Lafont, John Jaugeland, Daniel Dahlstron, Steven Crowell and William Blattner . . . This volume will provide readers of Heidegger with a treasure chest of shining gems worthy of careful reading and rereading."
