The author shows how the concept of opposition can be instrumental in solving some of the notorious problems in philosophy. With special attention to Sartre and Heidegger, Hoffman offers new solutions to the problems that have been formulated by other philosophers. The three main issues are identified by the chapter titles: Opposition and Particularity, Opposition and Intersubjectivity, and Opposition and Temporality.
