These essays from one of our most stimulating thinkers showcase Tallis's infectious fascination, indeed intoxication, with the infinite complexity of human lives and the human condition.

Focusing on the concept of freedom, Leslie Paul Thiele makes Heidegger's philosophical works speak directly to politics in a postmodern world. Neither excusing Heidegger for his political sins nor ignoring their lesson, Thiele nonetheless refrains from polemic in order creatively to engage one of the greatest philosophers of our time.

Im vorliegenden Buch geht es darum ?wie Dinge sind?. Es wird von den Grundlagen einer deskriptiven (?alltagsontologischen?) Dingontologie ausgegangen und eine Theorie über die Titelfrage entwickelt, welche sich am Begriff ?Modus? orientiert. Modi sind konkrete, individuelle Bestimmungen von Dingen.
