This book provides new interpretations of Heideggers philosophical method in light of 20th-century postmodernism and 21st-century speculative realism. In doing so, it raises important questions about philosophical method in the age of global warming and climate change.
Vincent Blok addresses topics that have yet to be extensively discussed in Heidegger scholarship, including Heideggers method of questioning, the religious character of Heideggers philosophical method, and Heideggers conceptualization of philosophical method as explorative confrontation. He is also critical of Heideggers conceptuality and develops a post-Heideggerian concept of philosophical method, which provides a new perspective on the role of willing, poetry, and earth-interest in contemporary philosophy. This earth-interest turns out to be particularly important to consider and leads to critical reflections on Heideggers concept of Earth, the necessity of Earth-interest in contemporary philosophy, and a post-Heideggerian concept of the Earth.
