(p.1) Introduction

Jarrett Zigon

Fordham University Press

In addition to introducing the aim, argument, and approach of the book, the introduction also includes a lengthy discussion of what Heidegger calls “the modern form of ontology,” i.e., metaphysical humanism, which is linked to both contemporary academic analysis and political practices. In doing so, the link between ontology, politics, and ethics is made, which frames the rest of the book.

Keywords:   ethics, Heidegger, metaphysical humanism, ontology, politics, political disappointment
