Synopses & Reviews
Heidegger's resistance to the crude biologism, racism, and anti-Semitism of the Nazi Party cannot, I believe, be doubted. Yet his ardent nationalism and anti-liberalism, his intransigent conservatism in matters economic, social, and political, along with his passion for historic decisions at the national level, made him an easy prey to hopes of resurgence.
A landmark discussion between two great thinkers, vital to an understanding of twentieth-century philosophy and intellectual history.
