In the Brightness of Place: Topological Thinking with and After Heidegger (Paperback)
The work of Jeff Malpas is well-known for its contribution to contemporary thinking about place and space. In the Brightness of Place takes that contribution further, as Malpas develops it in new ways and in relation to new topics. At the same time, the volume also develops Malpas' distinctively topological approach to the work of Martin Heidegger. Not limited simply to a reading of the topological in Heidegger, In the Brightness of Place also takes up the idea of topology after Heidegger, showing how topological thinking provides a way of rethinking Heidegger's own work and of rethinking our own being in the world.
Jeff Malpas is Emeritus Distinguished Professor at the University of Tasmania in Australia. His many books include Rethinking Dwelling: Heidegger, Place, Architecture and The Fundamental Field: Thought, Poetics, World (coauthored with Kenneth White).
