In Heidegger’s Way of Being, the follow-up to his 2010 book, Engaging Heidegger, Richard Capobianco makes the case clearly and compellingly that the core matter of Heidegger’s lifetime of thought was Being as the temporal emergence of all beings and things. Drawing upon a wide variety of texts, many of which have been previously untranslated, Capobianco illuminates the overarching importance of Being as radiant manifestation – “the truth of Being” – and how Heidegger also named and elucidated this fundamental phenomenon as physis (Nature), Aletheia, the primordial Logos, and as Ereignis, Lichtung, and Es gibt.

Heidegger’s Way of Being brings back into full view the originality and distinctiveness of Heidegger’s thought and offers an emphatic rejoinder to certain more recent readings, and particularly those that propose a reduction of Being to “sense” or “meaning” and maintain that the core matter is human meaning-making.  Capobianco’s vivid and often poetic reflections serve to evoke for readers the very experience of Being – or as he prefers to name it, the Being-way – and to invite us to pause and meditate on the manner of our human way in relation to the Being-way.

Richard Capobianco is a professor in the Department of Philosophy at Stonehill College.

Heidegger’s Way of Being clearly and calmly focuses on the point that Being is The Subject for Heidegger. Capobianco has a clear mastery of Heidegger’s texts, and explicates them in a way that demonstrates Heidegger’s own clarity on the topic.”

Robert Mugerauer, Department of Urban Design and Planning, University of Washington

Heidegger’s Way of Being is a significant, timely, and substantial contribution to the understanding and appropriation of Heidegger’s thought. A thoughtful, perceptive, and substantial response to some one-sided tendencies in explorations and interpretations of Heidegger’s philosophy, the book reclaims and re-vindicates the primordial task of Heidegger’s thinking.”

George Kovacs, Department of Philosophy, Florida International University

‘This book will prove indispensable to anybody working within Heidegger studies, especially those interested in his work on poetry, language, and Heraclitus.’

S. Montgomery Ewegen, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews January 2015
