Description

This present book," he writes, "comes from a serious engagement with the French Heideggerians for many years, and I have indicated what some of the debates are within this reception in the end notes to the chapters. I have read a few introductory text's on Heidegger's being and time and although this Large's book is not the worst it certainly is not what I regard as being fully adequate. On first examination it looks like a concise and clear guide. However this is not the case. There are areas that are clear but there are also areas.

William large's book helps to illuminate one of the most influential philosophical books of the twentieth century, Martin Heidegger's "Being and Time," he deconstructs phenomenology. Heidegger's kind of phenomenology has to do with the idea of phenomenon, which means something that appears and shows itself. His criticism of traditional philosophy is that it gets started with categories, concepts, and notions, departing from the way human comprehension of this world first shows itself. This is Aristotelian and Aristotle is an enormous influence on Heidegger.

In a downloadable iTunes UC Berkeley lecture from 2007, Professor Hubert Dreyfus makes a startling claim: he feels Martin Heidegger's influence on American philosophy has increased and Ludwig Wittgenstein's has waned. Anyone who studied Analytic Philosophy in the 1990s during Wittgenstein-mania will likely drop their mandible at this claim. First at the mere notion of sagging influence (which is likely disputable), and second, and most shockingly, at who his influence has supposedly sagged to. Historically, Heidegger has not been embraced by the Analytic school. "Anathema" may even sum up his general reception in that camp (reference his infamous "debate" with Rudolph Carnap). And though both famous philosophers in question hail from Germany, they have remained largely entrenched in opposite, and warring, philosophical schools. The divide originates within the grand schism between Analytic and Continental philosophy. Scholars tend to subsume Heidegger in the latter school and Wittgenstein in the former. These two sides rarely speak and when they do fur may fly. But times change, and some in the Analytic school have turned towards the once exiled Heidegger to explore epistemological problems. As such, Heidegger studies in English, at least in philosophy departments, usually examine his work with an Analytic attitude. Enter this deceptively small book called, appropriately, "Heidegger's Being and Time." In the introduction author William Large suggests he wants to provide an alternative for the Analytic attitude towards Heidegger. "This present book," he writes, "comes from a serious engagement with the French Heideggerians for many years, and I have indicated what some of the debates are within this reception in the end notes to the chapters." And in the end notes they stay, with a peppering of Levinas, Derrida, Foucault, and others rarely mentioned off the continent. But, as Large also states, this dimension stays out of the main discussion. Completely out. The end notes do point to Continental references and provide at least a taste of "the other side." Nonetheless, this is no Continental introduction to Heidegger. But, more importantly, it is a facile, clear, challenging, and accessible introduction to the ideas of Division I and II of Heidegger's magnum opus. Heidegger's influence will likely grow, a la Dreyfus, if such introductions flourish in English.

The book has three parts: 1. Historical Context; 2. A Guide To The Text; 3. Study Aids. Part 1 delves into the phenomenological origins of "Being and Time" via the work of Edmund Husserl. This early 20th century school tried to reawaken the "doing" of philosophy outside the classroom, in that it attempted to bring method to theory. Using phenomenology, someone can go out in the world and explore. Heidegger studied under Husserl and appropriated the phenomenological viewpoint for his own work, but not before changing it irrevocably. Using some of Heidegger's early lectures (notably "The History of the Concept of Time") this section traces the morphing of phenomenology under Husserl into ontology under Heidegger. Ultimately, Heidegger felt that Husserl had left out the world ("bracketed out," to use Husserl's terminology) in his phenomenological analysis of consciousness. This provides a launching pad for Heidegger's investigation into the question of Being, a notion absent or presupposed in Husserl's work, and the being that asks "what it means to be," Dasein. This crucial section outlines the background framework of phenomenology briefly and effectively, especially for newcomers. It also provides a brilliant segue for the next section.

Part 2, "A Guide To The Text," provides a holistic, and sometimes vertiginous, summation of "Being and Time." This is the bulk of the book. As an overview it excels in capturing the main points, as well as some nooks and crannies, of Heidegger's turgid masterpiece: the question of Being (Large follows the MacQuarrie and Robinson translation and capitalizes "Being"); Aristotle's definition via "Genus"; categorical vs. existential; Dasein; everydayness; ontic vs. ontological; "The Destruction of Philosophy" (uprooting traditional concepts to expose the neglect of the question of "Being"); "Being-In-The-World" and "worldness"; the place of science (Heidegger is not anti-science as often thought); spatiality measured ontologically as "concern"; "the 'They';" Thrownness and moods; equipment ("ready-to-hand" precedes "present-to-hand" and never vice versa); the nothing at the foundation of our existence which leads to anxiety, falling, idle chatter, and inauthenticity; "Being-Towards-Death" which can lead us to own our existence, our embracing of the nothing and our possibilities (authenticity); the future orientation of Dasein in possibility (authentic temporality), the facticity of its past, and the fallenness of its present. The discussion sometimes veers from the order of "Being and Time," but claims to do so for reasons of clarity. In the end, Large follows Levinas in bemoaning the absence of ethics in "Being and Time." Though he finds Heidegger's infamous Nazism irrelevant to a discussion of his work (he even says, in the Introduction, that biography doesn't illuminate philosophy, and that he has eliminated biography due to the glut of information available today). Following this section the brain will feel as the stomach does following a large but satisfying meal.

The final part, "Study Aids," will prove extremely useful for newcomers to Heidegger. Apart from a very handy glossary of Heidegger's voluminous and beguiling terms, a "Further Reading" section outlines and critiques works by and about Heidegger. In particular, the subsection called "Recommended Secondary Works on 'Being and Time'" will help determine where to go next before braving the imposing source itself. Lastly, students may benefit from the discussion on writing essays on "Being and Time."

Large's book looks deceptively small, but each page penetrates deep. It is not an easy read. Heidegger never is. Nonetheless, those looking for an overview of one of the 20th century's most influential books would do well to start here.

I have read a few introductory text's on Heidegger's being and time and although this Large's book is not the worst it certainly is not what I regard as being fully adequate.On first examination it looks like a concise and clear guide.However this is not the case.There are areas that are clear but there are also areas that are quite unclear.The first chapter dealing with Heidegger's development away from Husserlian phenomenology is unclear.It could have been stated quite clearly in one to two pages but instead was mostly waffle.Large also falls down when explaining guilt and conscience on page 82.Perhaps there was a typing error but he states with regards to throwness and projection that 'I am not responsible for what is not me and for what is 'not yet'' whereas on page 81 he says correctly ,from a Heideggerian view of the indebtedness of throwness, the very opposite.
The strong point is that it gives a very 'French' flavour to 'Being and Time' emphasising why Heidegger had to use the language of 'Being-in-the-World'.
