summary
In a call to planetary thinking, planetary building, and planetary dwelling, Norman K. Swazo discusses Heidegger’s thought as it relates to issues of global politics, specifically, the domain of world order studies. In the first division of the book, Swazo provides a theoretical critique of world order studies understood in the two modes of normative and technocratic futurism. The book’s second division includes a preliminary attempt to clarify what Heidegger’s call for “essential thinking” entails for political thinking. This signifies a new beginning for political discourse, heralded in the possibility of “essential political thinking” that Swazo calls “autarchology.”
