The Problem with Being that Can be Understood
Jeff Mitscherling, University of Guelph

The collection's twelve essays aim and succeed in providing valuable analyses and further developments of Mitscherling's key arguments. Essays on Aesthetic Genesis will be of greatest interest to phenomenologists, but also makes noteworthy contributions to central debates in the history of philosophy, current considerations in the philosophy of mind, and to contemporary readings of Continental philosophers such as Husserl, Heidegger, and Gadamer.... It explores and develops with scholarly integrity ideas presented in Mitscherling's earlier book that seem both commonplace and commonly denied.
