Making Sense of Heidegger: A Paradigm Shift by Thomas SheehanMaking Sense of Heidegger presents a radically new reading of Heideggers notoriously difficult oeuvre. Clearly written and rigorously grounded in the whole of Heideggers works, Thomas Sheehans latest book argues for the unity of Heideggers thought on the basis of three theses: that his work was phenomenological from beginning to the end; that being refers to the meaningful presence of things in the world of human concerns; and that what makes such intelligibility possible is the existential structure of human being as the thrown open or appropriated clearing. Sheehan offers a compelling alternative to the classical paradigm that has dominated Heidegger research in the last half-century, as well as a valuable retranslation of the key terms in Heideggers lexicon. This important book opens a new path in phenomenology that will stimulate dialogue within Heidegger Studies, with philosophers outside the phenomenological tradition, and with scholars in theology, literary criticism and existential psychiatry.

Making Sense of Heidegger: A Paradigm Shift
Thomas Sheehan is one of the pre-eminent commentators on Heidegger in the English-speaking world: this is his fourth major work on Heidegger and sits among numerous articles. In contrast to not a few contemporary commentators on Heidegger, Sheehan draws widely and deeply on material right across the now vast Gesamtausgabe or 'collected works' of Heidegger in this review I indicate the volumes of these with the now conventional abbreviation GA , with the relevant volume and page number. This book is the first in an important new series sponsored by the mainly North American 'Heidegger Circle'. Not the least of the book's virtues is that it is appears in attractive and very affordable paperback format, with impeccable editing, which bodes well both for a new publisher albeit a division of a much older one and a new series. Sheehan's is already an important, if controversial, book and is being widely cited -- two recent PhD theses I have been asked to review make extensive appeal to it. If Sheehan's stature as a commentator on Heidegger were not already enough to recommend it, the book is written in a lucid and approachable style if not without occasional lapses into the jargon of the seminar-room , and Sheehan continually alerts readers to the complexity and difficulties in understanding terms central to Heidegger's work, like Dasein and Ereignis.
