Heidegger’s Being and Time by Mark Blitz

Blitz, Mark. Heidegger’s Being and Time and the Possibility of Political Philosophy. Cornell University Press, 1981.


Heidegger’s Being and Time (1927) challenged earlier thinking about the basic structures of human being, our involvement in practical affairs, and our understanding of history, time, and being. Mark Blitz clarifies Heidegger’s discussions, offers brief alternative analyses of phenomena central to Heidegger’s argument, and examines the connection between Heidegger’s arguments in Being and Time and his support of Nazism.
