Summary Read First Chapter image missing

"I regard this as one of the most important books on Kant and Heidegger that has yet been published. Once I picked it up, I could hardly put it down. Schalow succeeds, almost alone among Heidegger scholars, in bringing Heidegger's perspective to bear on questions of ethics, moral freedom, and its social implications--topics usually lost in arcane articles that find few readers. He also addresses the relationship between Heidegger and Kant with an imaginative intelligence, and effectively roots much of Heidegger in his joining with or rejoinders to Kant. This is to bring into a common focus two of today's most widely read philosophers--and in a way that brings the issues that join, and those that perhaps divide them, alive and meaningful to contemporary philosophic discussions.

"It is exceptionally well-written; this is especially noteworthy because it deals with two philosophers who are legendary for their difficulty. It provides a comprehensive view of the entire Heidegger corpus (including an exceptionally wide array of the relevant secondary literature), and is built and succinctly focused around one central theme. The author traces the beginning of Heidegger's continuing dialogue with Kant not from its first appearance but from its nurturing grounds. And he follows it through around one basic theme--the concern to provide a theoretical base for 'practical' (i.e. moral) reason in its widest ramifications."-- Charles M. Sherover, Hunter College, City University of New York
