About the Author

Adam Knowles is Assistant Teaching Professor of Philosophy at Drexel University.


"Heidegger's insistence on the authority of the silent led him to view National Socialism as a panacea for modernity's technological attempt to render transparent all that is spoken and known. Adam Knowles's exceptional book opens up a new window onto the philosopher's embrace of Nazism and its attack on World Jewry." -- Michael Meng * Clemson University *
"This game-changing book delivers a profound assessment of Martin Heidegger's anti-Semitism and Nazism. Combining painstaking historical research with astute analysis, Adam Knowles raises key questions about philosophy's resolve to resist complicity in oppressive politics." -- John K. Roth * Claremont McKenna College *
"Adam Knowles integrates a rigorous reading of Heidegger's published writings and lecture courses with a nuanced discussion of the notorious Black Notebooks. The result is a new and challenging approach to the philosopher's silence about the Holocaust that cannot be ignored." -- Robert Bernasconi * Pennsylvania State University *
"Adam Knowles's innovative and elegantly written book invites everyone concerned about the impact of authoritarian regimes to ponder the past-and the present-anew. Knowles illuminates the integral nature of Heidegger's politics and philosophy with amazing clarity, never losing sight of the big-picture question: how the humanities respond to totalitarian rule." -- Deborah Dwork * Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies *
