About the Authors
  • This book is a systematic reconstruction of Heidegger's account of time and temporality in Being and Time. The author locates Heidegger in a tradition of "temporal idealism" with its sources in Plotinus, Leibniz, and Kant. For Heidegger, time can only be explained in terms of "originary temporality," a concept integral to his ontology. Professor Blattner sets out not only the foundations of Heidegger's ontology, but also his phenomenology of the experience of time. Focusing on a neglected but central aspect of Being and Time this book will be of considerable interest to all students of Heidegger both inside and outside philosophy.

    • Only book on a key aspect of Heidegger's philosophy
    • Heidegger's appeal is enormous and cross-disciplinary (e.g. Companion to Heidegger has sold well over 10,000 paperback copies)

    "Heidegger's Temporal Idealism remains a close reading which will certainly open up a challenging reading of SZ for those working within the analytic tradition." International Philosophical Quarterly
