Author Biography

Martin Heidegger was an influential German philosopher known for his existential and phenomenological explorations of the "question of Being." His best-known textbook, Being and Time, is considered to be one of the most important philosophical works of the 20th century and he has been influential beyond philosophy, in literature, psychology and artificial intelligence. Heidegger remains controversial due to his involvement with Nazism and statements in support of Adolf Hitler.
