The Human Situation

A Philosophical Anthropology

Gerd Haeffner
Translated by Eric Watkins

This book is an excellent introduction to philosophical anthropology for students in a variety of disciplines, with emphasis on developing issues and problems with a phenomenological method, rather than presenting its material within a formal historical framework.

216 pages
Publication Year: 1989

“This introductory outline of philosophical anthropology sketches a dialectical progression of solutions to the problem of what it is to be human. Seeking to provide a unification of the concept of human existence, Haeffner sequentially thematizes with prudence the problems of subjectivity, language, sociality, historicity, mind-body relation, consciousness, and freedom of the will.” — Choice
