Appearing for the first time in English, this book by Jacques Taminiaux is a systematic investigation into Hannah Arendt's intellectual relationship to Heidegger, the implications of which are indispensable to understanding the philosophical choices of our times. Contrary to other recent studies on these two figures, Taminiaux claims "that Arendt's two major works... reveal at every page not at all a dependency upon Heidegger... but rather a constant, and increasingly ironic, debate with him." In the process, Heidegger's philosophical work is interpreted in terms of its own political significance.
