The Young Heidegger: Rumor of the Hidden King (Studies in Continental Thought)

From Library JournalVan Buren (philosophy, Fordham) presents a clear and cogent argument for the theory that Martin Heidegger's mature thought, epitomized in Being and Time, actually was a return to his youthful theory and concerns. Van Buren relies and expounds upon the learning and development of such recognized students and explicators of Heidegger as Georg Gadamer, William Richardson, and Michael Zimmerman to advance his presentation of Heidegger's experiences with religious exploration, professional productivity, and the Nazi era. The text at hand should prove a useful guide to students, a provocative resource for future scholars, and an approachable inquiry for informed general readers. Van Buren's ability to present a rounded discussion while using Heidegger's own technical vocabulary is highly commendable.Francisca Goldsmith, Berkeley P.L., Cal.Copyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc.". . . a major contribution to Heidegger scholarship . . ." -Journal of the History of Behavioral Sciences"Van Buren's portrayal of these formative years is striking and vital to all future Heidegger scholarship." -Christian Century"Van Buren presents a clear and cogent argument for the theory that Martin Heidegger's mature thought, epitomized in Being and Time, actually was a return to his youthful theory and concerns. . . .

CaputoA startling new reading of Martin Heidegger's early thought leading up to Being and Time (1927) and its subsequent development in his later writings.From the Inside FlapHannah Arendt wrote that Martin Heidegger's reputation as a thinker and teacher during the early 1920s traveled throughout Germany "like the rumor of the hidden king". In The Young Heidegger, John van Buren offers a new reading of Martin Heidegger's youthful thought leading up to Being and Time (1927) and its subsequent development in his later writings. Part One deconstructs Heidegger's later autobiographical accounts of his early period, demonstrating that the philosopher's famous "turn" after Being and Time was in fact also a re-turn to his youthful thought. Part Two examines Heidegger's student years, showing the influences of Scholasticism, medieval mysticism, Neo-Kantianism, and phenomenology on his thinking during this period. Part Three focuses on Heidegger's early Freiburg period, sketching his project of demythologizing metaphysics and effecting the end of philosophy. Part Four traces the young Heidegger's anarchic, personalist formulations of his new postmetaphysical beginning. Van Buren employs Heidegger's youthful thought to work out strategies for demythologizing problematic aspects of his later thought (such as the eclipse of the personal Other, essentialism, ethnocentrism, genderism, and anthropocentrism) and to liberate its more radical countertendencies within contemporary debates.From the Back CoverHannah Arendt wrote that Martin Heidegger's reputation as a thinker and teacher during the early 1920s traveled throughout Germany ""like the rumor of the hidden king.""
