Heidegger and the Problem of Evil

Translated into English by Patrick Trompiz and Agata Bielik-Robson


Cezary Wodziński

This book provides an encompassing and thorough study of Martin Heidegger’s thought. It is not only a presentation but also a profound critique of the thinker’s beliefs. In the context of Heidegger’s cooperation with Nazism, the author reflects on the reasons behind his inability to confront the problem of evil and vulnerability to the threats of totalitarianism.
