Tool-Being
Heidegger and the Metaphysics of Objects

Graham Harman

In this 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.
