Heidegger's Philosophy of Religion: From God to the Gods

Ben Vedder. Heidegger’s Philosophy of Religion: From God to the Gods . Pitts- burgh: Duquesne University Press, 2007. viii + 327 pp. At the heart of Heidegger’s refl ections on philosophy of religion (or theology or theism or religious experience) is a plethora of paradoxes—or at least com- plexities that are hardly easy to resolve. Very little is straightforward. Instead, at every turn are questions that beg for clarifi cation. Heidegger’s Philosophy of Religion , then, is a most welcome guide to Heidegger’s ever developing thinking regarding religion. Vedder’s account is highly informed, nuanced, and displays an impressive grasp of both Heidegger’s early and late thought.
