Description

Working from newly available texts in Heidegger's Complete Works, Krzysztof Ziarek presents Heidegger at his most radical and demonstrates how the thinker's daring use of language is an integral part of his philosophical expression. Ziarek emphasizes the liberating potential of language as an event that discloses being and amplifies Heidegger's call for a transformative approach to poetry, power, and ultimately, philosophy.show more

Review quote

The strength of the book lies in its careful extraction of Heidegger's theorization of ontological difference, over the course of his later writings on language. It will be helpful to anyone who wants broader exposure to the lineage of philosophies of difference, as these continue to proliferate in today's post-Continental environment. * CultureMachine.net 2015 * Language after Heidegger makes an important case for the originality and the considerable innovative potential of the linguistic aspects of the Heideggerian heritage. * Review of Metaphysics * This edition is an essential contribution to the growing array of discourses on what has come to be known as Conceptual Poetry . . . In spite of his study's challenging content, Ziarek explains Heidegger's method in clear and accessible terms that open the philosopher's thought to a wide readership. * SubStance * This is a remarkable achievement and a seminal contribution to Heidegger studies. . . . Ziarek's meticulous readings and translations constitute a major event in Heidegger studies. . . . Essential. * Choice *show more
