A Fascinating Cultural History of Heidegger in America Jan. 31 2011
By George Cotkin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Written with great wit and deep learning, Woessner discovers Heidegger's presence in many nooks and crannies of American culture. You will find here the expected struggles of professional philosophers with Heidegger's thought, but also how Heidegger has resonated, for instance, in the films of Terrence Malick. You might call this a reception history but such a term seems too confining for what Woessner has managed to pull off. By understanding how Americans have struggled with and appropriated Heidegger, we also gather the various possibilities that this philosopher makes available. And we also glimpse, in the process, perhaps an American propensity to revision his work in ways that are sometimes exciting, sometimes problematic. This is a cultural history of philosophy that dances on the minds of its readers - stay with its beat!
