In this six-chapter book, Carman (Barnard College) argues that the concept of interpretation (Auslegung) plays a key role in Being and Time (1962). In this view, Heidegger is offering an account of "hermeneutic conditions"--the existential conditions of the explicit understanding of beings as beings--that belongs to the Kantian tradition of transcendentalism, but is superior to Kant's account of epistemic conditions (chapter 1), Husserl's phenomenological approach to intentionality (chapter 2), and Dennett's and Searle's analytic theories of intentionality (chapter 3). Furthermore, Heidegger is an "optic realist" (chapter 4) for whom occurrent entities (Vorhandenen) are independent from the hermeneutic conditions, and his concept of discourse (Rede) is the condition of interpretation par excellence by virtue of its role as the expressive-communicative dimension of Dasein's disclosedness (chapter 5). Carman ends with a critique of Heidegger's account of authenticity for neglecting to explore the hermeneutic conditions of a general concept of self (chapter 6). Although Carman shows a broad command of scholarship as he relates Heidegger to both Continental and analytic perspectives, his main thesis concerning the centrality of interpretation warrants more in-depth support and cohesion than repeated applications on freely related themes. ^BSumming Up: Recommended.

Reviews
Review Quotes
"...an oustanding scholarly contribution to the study of the early Heidegger's views on interpretation. The book is guaranteed to appeal to a wide range of readers..." Philosophical Inquiry, Dana Belu, Brooklyn College
"This is, in many respects, a refreshing book. It is clear and straightforward and closely-reasoned. While it does at times, especially in later chapters, become bogged down in Heideggerian jargon, it is a throwback to the days before deconstructionistic obliqueness became the rage. Carman is obviously a competent scholar in Heidegger, sympahetic but not uncritical, and he has something to say and says it, with clarity and even with elegance." Journal of Phenomenological Psychology
"Carman's project set out to interpret Heidegger by analogy with Allison's Kant interpretation. The result is an excellent book that, in its clarity and breadth of scope, is set to become as central to Heideggerian scholarship as Allison's work is for Kant scholars. It develops a coherent and convincing interpretation of Heidegger's enterprise in Being and Time, one that future interpretations cannot ignore." Philosophy in Review
'... illuminating and clear reading of Heidegger's great work ... an excellent book which all serious (and Husserl) scholars should read.' Recensioni a Tema

Summaries
Main Description
This 2003 book offers an interpretation of Heidegger's major work, Being and Time. Unlike those who view Heidegger as an idealist, Taylor Carman argues that Heidegger is best understood as a realist. Amongst the distinctive features of the book are an interpretation explicitly oriented within a Kantian framework (often taken for granted in readings of Heidegger) and an analysis of Dasein in relation to recent theories of intentionality, notably those of Dennett and Searle. Rigorous, jargon-free and deftly argued this book will be necessary reading for all serious students of Heidegger.
