0 Reviews
Although Martin Heidegger is well known for his work on technology, he is not often discussed in the context of science broadly speaking. This volume is the first to showcase diverse perspectives on Heidegger’s assessments of the sciences, looking at a number of different ways that Heidegger’s writings contribute to questions concerning how we understand the world through science. With particular attention to quantum theory, natural science, technoscience, and a section devoted specifically to investigating what Being and Time has to say about science, the book will be of interest to scholars in a wide range of disciplines and traditions. It closes with consideration of questions about sustainability and ethics raised by Heidegger’s engagement with the sciences.
