About the Author

Fred Dallmayr is Packey J. Dee Professor Emeritus in the departments of Philosophy and Political Science at the University of Notre Dame.


Fred Dallmayr has written another a remarkable book. Learned and scholarly, it is also clear and unpretentious in its language. Sweeping in its cultural concerns and references, it is also focused upon the most basic and simple enigmas of life. Throughout, Dallmayr reminds us of the real challenges of a life that is engaged and full of thought. -- Dennis J. Schmidt, Pennsylvania State University
Mindfulness and Letting Be contains fresh and inspiring words of wisdom from a well-known, distinguished master of Heidegger's thought. Fred Dallmayr's outlook is at the same time genuinely global, in the best sense of that word, and suffused with concern about humanity's future. -- William L. McBride, Purdue University
Mindfulness and Letting Be: on Engaged Thinking and Acting brings us further along the arc of Dallmayr's post-individualist political theory. Critical of contemporary pop culture understandings of mindfulness, Dallmayr instead rethinks the concept as an active "letting be." He provides a provocative and thoughtful cross-cultural argument for the resources, both theoretically and practically, mindfulness provides for a response to global dehumanization. -- Peg Birmingham, Professor of Philosophy, DePaul University
Dallmayr's prose is readable and clear. Though Heidegger's influence is felt throughout the text, Dallmayr's explanations make it deeply relevant and compelling. Through the author's inspiring description of an active "letting be," readers will gain insight into a way out of the mindlessness of contemporary society. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through researchers/faculty. * CHOICE *
