Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Ethics and Danger examines Heidegger's association with German National Socialism and attempts to understand both the question of politics in Heidegger's thought and the thought that gives rise to that question. It explores the contribution of Heidegger's work to issues of ethics, technology, and social theory, as well as his relationship to other thinkers such as Parmenides, Aristotle, Hegel, Husserl, Benjamin, Levinas, Rorty, Foucault, and Derrida. Finally, it addresses the more general question of the future of ethical thought within continental philosophy.

In order to engage the ethical issues surrounding Heidegger's life and thought, the authors speak of dangers such as facism and the facile, self-congratulatory moral stance that Heidegger exemplifies. The question of how to speak in the wake of Heidegger's thought takes many forms, and the answers represent a diversity of viewpoints from both American and continental thinkers.

Arleen B. Dallery is Associate Professor of Philosophy at LaSalle University. Charles E. Scott is Professor of Philosophy at Vanderbilt University. They are the editors of Crises in Continental Philosophy: The Question of the Other and Essays in Contemporary Continental Philsophy, both published by SUNY Press.
