Sloterdijk; Heidegger, Cassirer, Davos reviewed

Two interesting reviews on NDPR –  on Peter Sloterdijk’s Rage and Time and on Peter E. Gordon’s Continental Divide: Heidegger, Cassirer, Davos. The Sloterdijk one is pretty critical. I think it might miss what is worthwhile in Sloterdijk, but he is a frustrating writer certainly, and Rage and Time is hardly his finest hour. The review of Gordon’s book, by Hans Sluga, is much more positive, though it ends with a somewhat strange and I think unnecessary complaint about Cassirer.

[update – Peter Gratton adds some thoughts on the Sloterdijk review here]

[update 2 – Eric Schliesser also comments on this review, here]
