    The Hitchhiker s guide to the Heideverse Very good and accessible book on a notoriously obscure philosopher Heidegger s thought like Wittgenstein s can broadly be divided into two phases the phenomenological Being and Time phase and the mystic post Turn phase, and the book works in a similar chronological way, starting with a biography, and then exploring each area Having tried to get into both phases of Heidegger several times previously and failed, I recommend this book as an easy way in The Hitchhiker s guide to the Heideverse Very good and accessible book on a notoriously obscure philosopher Heidegger s thought like Wittgenstein s can broadly be divided into two phases the phenomenological Being and Time phase and the mystic post Turn phase, and the book works in a similar chronological way, starting with a biography, and then exploring each area Having tried to get into both phases of Heidegger several times previously and failed, I recommend this book as an easy way in.i 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.ii 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.e the focus was on one form of being such as being as form idea Plato , God as the supreme being Middle Ages as opposed to being and ways of being in general 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 nothingin 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.e a new way of viewing the world.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 200 pages.In short, I honestly think this is the best work I have read on Heidegger and can t recommend it enough
