Departures: At the Crossroads Between Heidegger and Kant

Mixed media product
In this study, the author shows new entry points to the dialogue between Kant and Heidegger. Schalow takes up the question: Why should a philosopher like Kant, for whom language seemed to be almost inconsequential, become the crucial counter point for a thinker like Heidegger to develop a novel way to understand and express the most perennial of all philosophical concepts, namely, 'being' as such? This approach allows for addressing issues which are normally relegated to the periphery of the exchange between Heidegger and Kant, including spatiality and embodiment, nature and art, religion and politics.
