Second Edition

Michael Inwood

Very Short Introductions

  • An accessible guide to the existentialist and complex philosophy of Heidegger, whose work runs to around a hundred volumes
  • Explores how Heidegger's thought offers a fascinating insight into the nature of being and time, freedom, and destiny
  • Includes a diagnosis of his anti-semitism, which has found further confirmation in the posthumous Black Notebooks
  • Part of the bestselling Very Short Introductions series--millions of copies sold worldwide

New to this Edition:

  • A new chapter discussing Heidegger's later work in more detail, and how it stemmed from the ideas of Being and Time
