Heidegger and Marx : A Productive Dialogue over the Language of Humanism, Paperback / softback Book

Heidegger and Marx : A Productive Dialogue over the Language of Humanism Paperback / softback


Martin Heidegger and Karl Marx remain two of the most influential thinkers in philosophy, in political science and other social sciences, and in the humanities.

Yet there has never been a full-length study in English of the relationship between their ideas, and there has only been one study in German (from 1966).

A Productive Dialogue fills this gap and contradicts the widely held assumption that Heidegger had no significant engagement with Marx.

Hemming focuses on four related areas of inquiry-Heidegger's reading of Marx; Marx's relation to G.

W. F. Hegel; Heidegger's disastrous political involvement with National Socialism; and the significance of Hegel, Marx, Heidegger, and Friedrich Nietzsche for the politics of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

A Productive Dialogue explores the understanding of political processes, systems, and behaviour that animates both thinkers.
