The aim of this book is to contribute to both the topological understanding of Heidegger and the continuing articulation and elaboration of topology as conceived in philosophy. In this respect, the chapters aim to supplement and expand the analysis of Heideggerian topology already begun in Heidegger’s Topology; however, they can equally be seen as contributing to the project of philosophical topography as first set out in an earlier volume, Place and Experience. The chapters encompass a decade or more of writing and focus on the idea of place, first, as it appears in Heidegger’s thinking, and, second, as it can be seen to provide the focus for a distinctive mode of philosophical thinking that encompasses, but is not restricted to, the Heideggerian.

Keywords:   topological understanding, Heidegger, topology, Heideggerian topology, philosophical topography, idea of place
