How are we to think and act constructively in the face of today's environmental and political catastrophes? Gail Stenstad finds inspiring answers in the thought of German philosopher Martin Heidegger. Rather than simply describing or explaining Heidegger's transformative way of thinking, Stenstad's writing enacts it, bringing new insight into contemporary environmental, political, and personal issues. Readers come to understand some of Heidegger's most challenging concepts through experiencing them. This is a truly creative scholarly work that invites all readers to carry Heidegger's transformative thinking into their own areas of deep concern.
Gail Stenstad is professor in the Department of Philosophy and Humanities at East Tennessee State University, associate editor of Heidegger Studies, and a member of the board of directors of the International Association for Environmental Philosophy.
