Martin Heidegger: philosophy's 'hidden king', or leading exponent of a dangerously misguided secular mysticism?

Heidegger announced the end of philosophy and of humanism, and was a committed Nazi and vocal supporter of Hitler's National Socialism. Was Heidegger offering a deeply conservative mythology or a crucial deconstruction of philosophy as we have known it?

Heidegger: A Graphic Guide provides an accessible introduction to his notoriously abstruse thinking, mapping out its historical context and exploring its resonances in ecology, theology, art, architecture, literature and other fields. The book opens up an encounter with a kind of thinking whose outlines might yet be unclear, and whose forms might still surprise us.

'Jeff Collins has done an admirable job of explicating this profound thinker.' John Banville, Irish Times
