In NDPR, Joanna Hodge reviews Mahon O'Brien's Heidegger and Authenticity: From Resoluteness to Releasement.
For Heidegger is precisely developing the discussion of resoluteness, of the event of being and of a releasement, into an attunement to that event, as a critique of the notion that a theory of judgment, as available to human cognition, can supply an adequate theory of truth. For Heidegger, truth is on the side of being, or beyng, and thus exceeds the compass of any theory of judgment focused on human reasoning. On this basis then Heidegger seeks to think the possibility and actuality of change, and of the conditions of judgment, as crisis turning points in which human existence itself is at stake.
