Dwelling: Heidegger, Archaeology, Mortality by Dr Philip Tonner

Dwelling: Heidegger, Archaeology, Mortality by Dr Philip Tonner

Unique book negotiates discourses of phenomenology, archaeology and palaeoanthropology to extend the 'dwelling perspective', particularly associated with Professor Tim Ingold.

This book deals with Heidegger’s philosophy through archaeology and anthropology, to expand its cross-disciplinary engagement into accounts of early humans and death awareness.

Dr Tonner reads Heidegger’s thought of dwelling in connection to recent developments in the archaeology of mortuary practice amongst our ancestors. Agreeing with Heidegger that an awareness of death marks out a distinctive way of ‘being-in-the-world’, Dr Tonner rejects any relict anthropocentrism in Heidegger’s thought and seeks to break down simple divisions between humans and pre-humans.

Some of the others who also inspired Dr Tonner include Chris Tilley, Julian Thomas, Chris Gosden and Clive Gamble. This book developed out of an engagement with the thought of Martin Heidegger. Ideal for readers wishing to cross disciplinary boundaries and to challenge anthropocentric thinking in accounts of human evolution.
