Phenomenology between aesthetics and idealism: an essay in the history of ideas (New Studies in Idealism)

“Phenomenology between aesthetics and idealism provides a highly accessible and well-written introduction to an otherwise difficult field. It will be extremely useful for readers looking to find a point of entry into Heidegger’s thought and its transcendental-phenomenological context.” Jeff Malpas Distinguished Professor University of Tasmania

Heidegger, Metaphysics and the Univocity of Being (Continuum Studies in Continental Philosophy) appeared in 2010.
