Description

Time and the Shared World challenges the common view that Heidegger offers few resources for understanding humanity's social nature. The book demonstrates that Heidegger's reformulation of traditional notions of subjectivity has wide-ranging implications for understanding the nature of human relationships. Contrary to entrenched critiques, Irene McMullin shows that Heidegger's characterisation of selfhood as fundamentally social presupposes the responsive acknowledgment of each person's particularity and otherness. In doing so, McMullin argues that Heidegger's work on the social nature of the self must be located within a philosophical continuum that builds on Kant and Husserl's work regarding the nature of the a priori and the fundamental structures of human temporality, while also pointing forward to developments of these themes to be found in Heidegger's later work and in such thinkers as Sartre and Levinas. By developing unrecognised resources in Heidegger's work, Time and the Shared World is able to provide a Heidegger-inspired account of respect and the intersubjective origins of normativity.
