In this study John Richardson introduces the `existential phenomenology' of Martin Heidegger, particularly as developed in his major work, Being and Time. Professor Richardson's object is to show how Heidegger's ideas bear on the central problem in epistemology, that of how we can have objective knowledge. He presupposes no familiarity with Heidegger and introduces the concepts and claims of his intricate and fascinating system in a particularly clear way. From this heconstructs arguments clarifying Heidegger's contribution to the theory of knowledge and showing why he thought the search for knowledge of the way things are in themselves is misguided.
