Heidegger on Death (Intensities: Contemporary Continental Philosophy of Religion)

Heidegger on Death (Intensities: Contemporary Continental Philosophy of Religion)

by George Pattison (Author)

Synopsis

This book examines the question of death in the light of Heidegger's paradigmatic discussion in Being and Time. Although Heidegger's own treatment deliberately refrains from engaging theological perspectives, George Pattison suggests that these not only serve to bring out problematic elements in his own approach but also point to the larger human or anthropological issues in play. Pattison reveals where and how Heidegger and theology part ways but also how Heidegger can helpfully challenge theology to rethink one of its own fundamental questions: human beings' relation to their death and the meaning of death in their religious lives.
