Product Overview

This book concerns itself with an issue that is not sufficiently addressed in the literature: Heidegger's philosophy of science. Although a great deal of attention is paid to Heidegger's later critique of technology, no one has systematically studied how he understood "science". Many readers will be surprised to learn, through this book, that Heidegger developed the essentials of a fairly sophisticated philosophy of science, one that in many ways invites comparison with that of Thomas Kuhn.

Glazebrook demonstrates that Heidegger's philosophy of science is not neatly divided into "earl" and "late" (or "Heidegger I" and "Heidegger II"), but is, rather, an ongoing development over a least three periods, bound together as an analysis of modern science and an uncovering of other possibilities for understanding nature.
