Heidegger and the Metaphysics of Objects
groundbreaking work, the author explains Heidegger’s famous
tool-analysis and then extends the theory beyond Heidegger’s
narrower thought on human practical activity to create an
ontology of objects themselves.
Martin Heidegger (1889 –1976) influenced the work of such
diverse thinkers as Sartre and Derrida. In Tool-Being,
Graham Harman departs from the prevailing linguistic approach to
analytic and continental philosophy in favor of Heideggerian
object-oriented research into the secret contours of objects.
Written in a colorful style, it will be of interest to anyone
open to new trends in present-day philosophy.
