Heidegger's confusions by Paul Edwards( Book )

9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this thorough critique of the philosophy of Martin Heidegger, philosopher Paul Edwards continues a project that he began several years ago. Edwards's goal has been "to rescue [Heidegger's] valuable ideas from the logical confusions in which they are embedded and from the willfully obscure and perverse language in which they are frequently expressed" (New York Review of Books, June 11, 1981). In this penetrating and witty book, Edwards insightfully analyzes Heidegger's quest for being; his treatment of death, anxiety, and nothingness; and his double-talk about life after death."--Jacket

8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

God and the philosophers by Paul Edwards( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This exploration of critical views on the nature and existence of God, as expressed by major philosophers of the Western world from the medieval period to the present day, is the last work of internationally recognized philosopher Paul Edwards. Edwards addresses how the concept of God has changed over the centuries, in large part due to the analyses of such skeptical thinkers as David Hume, Thomas Paine, Friedrich Nietzsche, and Bertrand Russell." "A longtime critic of theistic arguments, Edwards demonstrates a masterful understanding of the ways in which the scientific revolution of the seventeenth century, the Enlightenment of the eighteenth century, the evolutionary materialism of the nineteenth century, and the rise of analytic and existentialist philosophies in the twentieth century prepared the way for the growing role of atheism in the twenty-first century." "This work is an idiosyncratic evaluation of the views of dozens of Western thinkers on perennial topics in the philosophy of religion. Though not all of the philosophers discussed were nonbelievers or antireligious, they can be considered to be "freethinkers." They pursued the cause of knowledge wherever their thinking led them, often to iconoclastic positions."--Jacket
