Focuses on a neglected aspect of the Heidegger controversy: the question of Martin Heidegger's relationship to the industrialisation of death as symbolised by Auschwitz. Contributors seek to comprehend the meaning of Heidegger's post-war silence about the Holocaust, as well as the meaning of his several explicit references to the Extermination, in the light of his preoccupation with the nihilism that he believed to be the hallmark of our technological world. The essays in this book reflect the editors' concern to avoid both censorship and partisanship in their selections - resulting in a wide diversity of viewpoints, and the full spectrum of views, that have arisen in the course of the ongoing Heidegger debate.
