From the Publisher:
For over fifty years the philosophical achievements of Martin Heidegger have been haunted by a devil's bargain struck between the philosopher and the National Socialist movement of the early 1930s. Courageously, Richard Wolin has faced his subject head on ... and has approached his task with impressive learning and ingenuity.... This is a splendid book: vigorously argued but at the same time cautious, provocative but at the same time thoroughly responsible and discriminating.A compelling study of the relationship between Heidegger's (1889-1976) philosophy and his political allegiance to the National Socialist cause in the 1930s, originally published (cloth) in 1990.
