The first volume (of two) of Heidegger's Phenomenology of Perception, this is an incredibly rich and clear introduction to Martin Heidegger's phenomenological approach to inquiry more generally. Even though the title specifies perception, Kleinberg-Levin (emer., Northwestern Univ.) notes that particular issues having to do with perception will be taken up in his second volume, and that one must understand Heidegger broadly before one approaches his account of perception. Therefore, this introduction will be of great use to first-time readers of Heidegger as well as to specialists interested in perception per se. The book consists of two unequal parts. Part 1, "Another Humanism?" is only 16 pages and introduces Heidegger's thought; part 2 comprises five chapters—"Sein," "Dasein," "Ereignis," "Lichtung," "Geschick"—each devoted to a central aspect of Heidegger's work. This introduction will set the reader up to understand the concerns of perception that Kleinberg-Levin discusses in volume 2 (forthcoming). Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty.
