In Heidegger and French Philosophy , Tom Rockmore examines the French reception of the thinking of this important and controversial German philosopher. He traces the way in which his theory has redifined and determined the nature of philosophical debate in France, and investigates how philosophers from Sarte, Lacan and Foucault to Derrida, Irigaray and Lacoue-Labarthe have adopted his thinking. In doing so, Rockmore delineates some of the main aspects of the French philosophical tradition, in particular its deep humanist commitment. In addition, by arguing for a contextual interpretation of Heidegger, Rockmore engages with the controversy over Heidegger's political affiliations with Nazism and whether or not this can be reconciled with current French Philosophy and its use of Heidegger's theory. Heidegger and French Philosophy examines the relation between Heidegger's philosophy and his politics, and contends that for the most part the French reception of his theory - first as philosophical anthropology and then as postmetaphysical humanism - is systematically mistaken.
