Casati F & Wheeler M (2016) The Recent Engagement between Analytic Philosophy and Heideggerian Thought: Metaphysics and Mind. Philosophy Compass, 11 (9), pp. 486-498. https://doi.org/10.1111/phc3.12345
Martin Heidegger is a towering figure in the history of continental philosophy, but his work has recently been brought into productive engagement with analytic philosophy. This paper introduces and explores two channels along which such engagement has been taking place. The first is in metaphysics, where Heideggerian thought has been interpreted either as making the metaphysical concept of being literally senseless or as mandating a revision to classical logic. The second is in philosophy of mind, and more particularly in philosophy of cognitive science, where Heideggerian thought has been used to mount a challenge to representational theories of mind.
