Book Description

Naturalism and the Human Condition is a compelling account of why naturalism, or the 'scientific world-view' cannot provide a full account of who and what we are as human beings.
Drawing on sources including Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Husserl and Sartre, Olafson exposes the limits of naturalism and stresses the importance of serious philosophical investigation of human nature.



Frederick A. Olafson is one of the principal interpreters of the thought of Martin Heidegger in the English-speaking world. He is Professor Emeritus at the University of California, San Diego.
