“A nuanced and convincing reading of Heidegger on the question of the mind-body duality.”

—Leonard Lawlor, author of Early Twentieth Century Continental Philosophy



Nancy J. Holland turns to the thought of Martin Heidegger to help understand an age-old philosophical question: Is there a split between the body and the mind? Arguing against philosophical positions that define human consciousness as an overarching phenomenon or reduce it to the brain or physicality, Holland contends that consciousness is relational and it is this relationship that allows us to inhabit and negotiate in the world. Holland forwards a complex and nuanced reading of Heidegger as she focuses on consciousness, being, and what might constitute the animal or, more broadly, other-than-human world. Holland engages with the depth and breadth of Heidegger’s work as she opens space for a discussion about the uniqueness of human consciousness.
