about this item

Perlman analyzes Who Is Man? by Abraham Heschel, and analyzes postmodernism as it bears upon certain philosophical and theological positions that are important in the discussion of religion, Judaism, and historical events. Identifying the thought of Martin Heidegger and the Holocaust as the axis around which most of the book revolves, he emphasizes the centrality of Heidegger's and Heschel's different phenomenological outlooks as they are applied to Dasein and Adam respectively, and illustrates how profound Heshel's critique of Heidegger and postmodernism is by extending Heschel's ideas in contrast to several important postmodern followers of Heidegger.
