This freshly published volume contains the first printed edition with notes and commentaries of the section on Martin Heidegger’s ‘Sein und Zeit’ in Charles Malik’s 1937 philosophy doctoral thesis at Harvard University. This stands as a pioneering Anglophone engagement with Heidegger’s thinking in treating themes like death, existence, hermeneutics, history, humanism, metaphysics, modernity, ontology, phenomenology, and time, which are of interest to Heidegger Studies and Malik Studies, and to investigating the modern confluences of German and Lebanese thought, as embodied in Heidegger’s standing as a towering philosopher, and in Malik’s attributes as a notable thinker, educator, and diplomat. The theme of the book contributes, thus, to a growing interest in this line of research in philosophy. It has been edited and annoted within the framework of the Orient-Institute's in-house series "Beirut texts and studies" (BTS) by Prof. Nader El-Bizri.
NADER EL-BIZRI is the Dean of the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences at the University of Sharjah. He was previously a tenured Professor of Philosophy and Civilization Studies at the American University of Beirut, where he also served as Associate Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, and as the Director of the General Education Program in the liberal arts. He was also appointed across the academic ranks at universities in the UK, USA, and EU.
