Being and Time - Heidegger originally intended to be a theologian and Being and Time thought can be read as an attempt to secularize the Christian viewpoint. Instead of a last judgement, man is thrown into the world and fleeing from angst, the fear of death, but it is death that gives man's life meaning.
Hence man's place is as a being in time. It is for man to be authentic and take account for his actions- this authenticity takes the place of the Christian salvation. In addition, Heidegger was part of a school of thought known as "phenomenology"- a focus on the things in themselves as opposed to abstract conceptions. Objects are to be understood through a framework based on their use, rather than in an individual context. So man too is to be understood in such a framework as outlined above. The Turn Heidegger originally intended to publish a third division of "Being and Time", but abandoned the project.
This shift in approach was known as "the turn". Heidegger then adopted an alternative historical approach to the problem of being the third division intending to cover a historical approach. His argument was that early philosophers had sight of being itself, but it became obscured by language and metaphysics after Plato irreversibly i.

His goal was to "unconceal" being. To do so he focused on how language and objects form the world and "being" as we know it. He places much emphasis on the poetry of Holderlin German mystic poet and the power of language to introduce new ways of perceiving the world. He also talks about how temple structures created divisions that made people aware of their being in different ways- by creating a dividing line between earth and sky they made people consider their relationship to the gods and to the earth in a new way.
In the last chapter God and Technology , the author discusses how technology is increasingly becoming a single viewpoint which is shutting out other ways of viewing the world.
The Rhine with its ancient history, its natural beauty is nothing more in the eyes of the techno-state than a way to produce electricity and fish fingers ok I made the fish-fingers point up. If we focus on just one way of viewing the world, we lose so much. Hence his claim in his last interview "only a God can save us now" i. One of the great strengths is this book is that it doesn't degenerate into unreadable lines of "daseining the geworfenheit". The German specialist terms are there, but only dasein instantiation of being is used repeatedly without an explainer everytime.
It also doesn't degenerate into a Nazi-obsessed book. Yes, Heidegger was a member of the Nazi party. Yes he was not a particularly nice man to his Jewish mentor.

Yet Heidegger's work is much less personal than a philosopher like Nietzsche and to obsess about his Nazism misses the point. It is also relatively short, clocking in at around pages. In short, I honestly think this is the best work I have read on Heidegger and can't recommend it enough.

Showing Rating details. More filters. Sort order. Having not read Heideggerian Being and Time yet, but studying Levinas and Derrida for my Phd, and having worked around other continental philosophers who are influenced by him this was an excellent book to give me a broader and deeper appreciation of the more prominent aspects of Heidegger's work.
Mulhall makes his work accessible and leaves you feeling more prepared to confront Heidegger's texts from a more informed position. Jun 19, Elaine added it Shelves: post-kantian-hegel-heidegger. Feb 03, Mun rated it it was amazing Shelves: philosophy. Excellent guide to Being and Time. Mulhall breaks down Heidegger in a way that is very intuitive and clear, but rather than merely explaining Heidegger's terms in a simplistic manner, he also answers questions that would pop up in any reader's mind. His writings style is compact but retains a very charming sort of dynamism.
I would recommend a person read this alongside or right after Being and Time. I tested reading one of Mulhall's chapters without having read the corresponding section in B Excellent guide to Being and Time. Jun 02, Luke Echo rated it liked it. Adequate introductory commentary, but the speculative sections where Mulhall introduces more radical interpretations, seem out of place in an "introduction" like this. Also, I felt it could have stayed closer to the text itself, as some of the other books in this Routledge series tend to do. Mar 25, Cheong Cheng Wen rated it liked it.

My suggestion is to read along with the text itself, especially for last chapters on historicity and temporality. It is difficult to read the guide on its own, just like how it is difficult to read the work itself. Apr 28, David rated it really liked it. Reading this book through first after starting "Being and Time" is helpful. Mulhall is doing well in accentuating my struggles to keep Heidegger's voluminous set of terms well organized.
Jul 17, Ed Look is currently reading it. Currently my bath book so will take a long time to finish as we have a separate shower!
