Reviews
"Heidegger in Ruins is an uncompromising and incisive reassessment of Heidegger's philosophy. Wolin convincingly demonstrates that he differed from his ideological competitors only in his more radical vision of a racial elect. Today, Heideggerianism survives in a variety of contemporary new right thinkers from Moscow to Charlottesville."--Anson Rabinbach, Princeton University

"For three decades, Richard Wolin has battled strong headwinds to demonstrate the links between Heidegger's vile politics and his sublime philosophy. Wolin's latest effort shows that the winds have shifted and the mighty fortress built by Heidegger and his defenders has been blown away."--Martin Jay, author of Genesis and Validity

"Richard Wolin's detailed and powerful analysis will be a widely read and widely discussed contribution to the debate over Heidegger and Nazism."--Alan E. Steinweis, author of Studying the Jew: Scholarly Antisemitism in Nazi Germany
