Bloomsbury, 2014. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. Philosophers explore whether there is a coherent debate in the metaphysics of time; temporal succession, temporal becoming, and the analysis of change; consciousness and time; and God, time, and human freedom. Their topics include two metaphysical perspectives on the duration of the present, temporal predicates and the passage of time, divine events, foreknowledge and fatalism: why divine timelessness does not help, and defending the isotemporalist solution to the freedom/foreknowledge dilemma. The essays could be used in classrooms or by practicing philosophers. (2014 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)

Bloomsbury, 2015. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. O'Brien attributes German philosopher Martin Heidegger's (1889-1976) vocal and active support for the Nazi regime to an underlying failure to establish the notion of an authentic Dasein of a people and other philosophical difficulties, and argues that his rhetoric should not be simply reduced to crude Nazi jingoism. He covers reassessing the affair; the essence of technology and the Holocaust; Heidegger's heritage: philosophy, anti-modernity, and cultural pessimism; the authentic Dasein of a people; and Heidegger and antisemitism.
