As its title indicates, this book aims at offering an exhaustive interpretation of Sein und Zeit, by providing an almost section to section analysis of the 1927 opus magnum. The author’s purpose, however, is neither to propose a mere summary of Heidegger’s main ideas, nor to submit a strictly immanent reading of Sein und Zeit, but rather to unearth the most fundamental phenomenological intuitions of the text, sometimes hidden by the common interpretation of Heideggerian jargon. Greisch’s investigation is twofold. On the one hand, it wants to take into account the Wirkungsgeschichte of Sein und Zeit, and its reception by philosophers like Lévinas, Ricoeur, and Marion, to confront it with some of the questions and objections that have been raised by contemporary philosophy, mostly in the wake of French phenomenology. On the other hand, and more importantly, it seeks to underline the hermeneutical structure of Sein und Zeit, which has found but a weak echo in most commentaries.
