World in the Rear-View Mirror - A review of Worldlessness After Heidegger: Phenomenology, Psychoanalysis, Deconstruction. Roland Végső (Edinburgh: Edinburgh University Press, 2020) (2021)
Even though the notion of world obviously plays an important role in the history of philosophy, its proper conceptualisations often get lost among its functioning simply as a synonym for reality, objectivity or totality.

Roland Végső’s book Worldlessness After Heidegger shows us that the world is not enough: What the concept of world brings to light is neither real nor is it everything.
