About the Authors
  • In Being and Time Heidegger gives an account of the distinctive features of human existence, in an attempt to answer the question of the meaning of being. He finds that underlying all of these features is what he calls 'original time'. In this clear and straightforward introduction to the text, Paul Gorner takes the reader through the work, examining its detail and explaining the sometimes difficult language which Heidegger uses. The topics which he covers include being-in-the-world, being-with, thrownness and projection, truth, authenticity, time and being, and historicity. His book makes Being and Time accessible to students in a way that conveys the essence of Heidegger's project and remains true to what is distinctive about his thinking.

    • Offers an accessible introduction to this challenging work for student readers
    • Provides a thorough explaination of Heidegger's use of language

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Gorner never loses sight of the question of the meaning of being that drives Being and Time, always returns appropriately to how Heidegger's phenomenology functions in the book, and connects everything to how 'Dasein' is defined by its disclosedness. … Gorner's book has many serious merits … and deserves to be studied by anyone who wants to understand Being and Time.' Milltown Studies
