This book is the first comprehensive study in English of Heidegger's philosophy of art.


Young (philosophy, U. of Aukland) agrees with most philosophers that the discussion should start with the 1935-39 essay The Origin of the Work of Art, but disagrees that it should end there as well. He argues that Heidegger himself later recognized that it was seriously inadequate in important respects, and that he spend another 40 years developing his ideas about art. Annotation c.
