Teaching Heidegger: Learning, Thinking, Being

I am seeking chapter proposals for a proposed book with working title Teaching Heidegger: Learning, Thinking, Being, hopefully to be published by Rowman & Littlefield as part of the New Heidegger Research series, edited by Gregory Fried and Richard Polt. I am looking for chapters by philosophers, educators, and other thinkers/researchers who draw on Heidegger’s thought.

I am continually struck by William Lovitt’s (1977) introductory comments to The Question Concerning Technology:
Heidegger is primarily a teacher. He does not wish to travel alone and then report what he has seen, nor does he wish to go as a guide merely pointing out objects along the road. He wishes the reader to accompany him on the way, to participate with him, and even to begin to build his own way through thinking,and not merely to hear about what it is or should be. (p. xvi, emphasis added)
It is in this spirit that want to open up a dialogue about teaching, and more specifically, our teaching as it may or may not have been impacted by Heidegger in this edited volume. Put differently, what can Heidegger teach us about teaching thinking, or philosophy? How can hearing and understanding Heidegger as a teacher inform our own understanding of Heidegger’s thinking? And therefore, how might this understanding inform our own teaching practice?

Current Status of Proposal: Book editor is in discussion with the editors of the New Heidegger Research series, and the book proposal will be sent to them for review after proposals are accepted and the structure of book takes shape.

Submission: by email, approximately 1 page, with:
  • Chapter Title
  • Proposed Length/Word Count 
  • Summary (1-2 paragraphs) 
  • A short bio and email contact
Email your proposal to Dr. Matthew Kruger-Ross, Assistant Professor, Department of Educational Foundations & Policy Studies, College of Education and Social Work, West Chester University of Pennsylvania. Email:

Chapter proposals due: Sunday 19 May 2019

Full draft chapters due: December 2019 (TBD)
