Heidegger in America, Hardback Book

Heidegger in America Hardback


Heidegger in America explores the surprising legacy of his life and thought in the United States of America.

As a critic of modern life, Heidegger often lamented the growing global influence of all things American.

However, it was precisely in America where his thought inspired the work of generations of thinkers - not only philosophers but also theologians, architects, novelists, and even pundits.

As a result, the reception and dissemination of Heidegger's philosophical writings transformed the intellectual and cultural history of the United States at a time when American influence was itself transforming the world.

A case study in the complex and sometimes contradictory process of transnational exchange, Heidegger in America recasts the scope and methods of contemporary intellectual and cultural history in the age of globalization, challenging what we think we know about Heidegger and American ideas simultaneously.
