About the Author
In this second volume of his Heidegger’s Phenomenology of Perception, David Kleinberg-Levin pursues his exploration of the ontological dimension of embodiment, in particular the modes of seeing and hearing. Developing chapters on the key words of Gestalt, Gestell,Gelassenheit and Geviert, Kleinberg-Levin offers a brilliant and original work on how Heidegger’s thought contributes to a phenomenology of perception and hermeneutics. — François Raffoul, professor of philosophy and French studies, Louisiana State University
