About Graduate School with Heidegger

Greg Johnson’s Graduate School with Heidegger is unique in the vast literature on Heidegger. Written by a self-proclaimed “failed academic” for intelligent laymen, these essays and lectures serve as a non-systematic, non-technical introduction to the twentieth century’s most influential and difficult philosopher.

Johnson explains essential concepts like phenomenology, metaphysics, and nihilism. He defines technical terms like Being, the clearing, and the event. He discusses Heidegger’s relationships to Nietzsche, Husserl, and Evola. He explores the roots of Heidegger’s nationalist and ecological politics. He responds to the Heidegger interpretations of Thomas Sheehan, Richard Polt, Ronald Beiner, Alexander Dugin, John Caputo, and Richard Rorty. Finally, he recommends Heidegger’s many lecture courses as a graduate-level education in philosophy, free of the staggering cost and stifling conformity of contemporary academia.

“All sorts of readers will appreciate Greg Johnson’s lively, unpretentious, and accessible presentations of Heidegger’s thought. Johnson gives due credit to the best academic commentators on Heidegger. But there is one decisive respect in which Johnson departs from mainstream scholars and proves to be a far superior guide to Heidegger’s thought: his bold, open-minded, and honest treatment of all matters related to Heidegger’s politics.”—Anonymous Heidegger Scholar, from the Foreword

    Grrrr I’ve just orderd this month: The white nationalist manifesto, From Plato to Post Modernism, What is a Rune and other essays, summoning the Gods + die Untergang des Abendlandes and the translations of the poetic Edda. And now you are telling me that I need to order yet another book. What are you doing to me Greg! 😉

    Great idea. I am ordering. I am philosophically minded and interested in Heidegger. but I tried reading Being and quickly got lost in all the terminology. I will let Greg spoon feed me.

    Can’t wait!

    Greg is almost unique among philosophers in his ability to explain his subject plainly. The only others I can think of are Hume, Descartes, and Russell. With others, like Kant and Hegel, whatever greatness they may have, the reader gets the feeling of willful obfuscation on the part of the author.

    Back in the ancient mists of the 1980’s I did my doctoral dissertation on how Heidegger’s thinking about language and being was utilized by the Anglican systematic theologian John Macquarrie, who did the first translation of Sein und Zeit into English.

    I recall the headaches.

    As another “failed academic”, I look forward to Dr Johnson’s work. Following on his fascinating lecture on the Black Books, his project of rescuing Herr H from Liberal Captivity (which was then the overwhelming lens, for me included) has made the old man interesting to me once again.

      Was your doctorate in philosophy or theology?

    The cover art’s rather off-putting. Looks like a man of a different race trying to fathom the riddle of the Sphinx. Are we supposed to be in the same relationship to Heidegger? If so, this seems contrary to the essence of his thought. Why not a clearing in the Black Forest? Or a bridge over the Rhine?

      I like it. It follows the cover art from Greg’s last book.

      A most excellent cover ever. –A squalid ignorant negro is foolishly listening to the stone mouth of an old statue with a broken off high nose from an extinct Egyptian high civilization.
