Theodore Kisiel (1930-2021) – Daily Nous notice and obituary

Daily Nous has the news of the death of Theodore Kisiel. The obituary linked is a good summary of his work. I met him a couple of times at conferences – in Denton, North Texas and Meßkirch. He was always very kind and supportive, and wrote a nice endorsement for my book Speaking Against Number. His book The Genesis of Heidegger’s Being and Time was important to me, and something of an inspiration for my work on Foucault.

Professor Kisiel was well-known for his work on Heidegger. Among his several books are The Genesis of Heidegger’s Being and Time (1993) and Heidegger’s Way of Thought: Critical and Interpretative Signposts (2002), a collection of some of his essays. You can browse his writings here and here.

Kisiel joined the faculty of Northern Illinois University in 1969. Prior to that, he worked Canisius College. He earned his PhD in philosophy from Duquesne University.

He died on December 25th, 2021.
