I was wondering if anyone could suggest a book or two concerning Ontology. Please no Martin Heidegger; that man is absurd. Im talking about legitimate, academically-qualified, books that do not reek of an empty sense of profoundness. Prefereably books written by Analytic philosophers, but I do not mind Continental philosophers either.
@Ding an Sich,
This might help (from Wiki)
However, I don't see how you can avoid Heidegger even if you use him to kick against, since he is an essential figure in the historical development of the concept.
Thank you fresco. I will read Being and Time at some point; hell it's sitting on my bookshelf in all of it's hardcover goodness. The beast needs to be tackled!
Once again, thank you fresco. :-)
