Most widely held works by Thomas Sheehan
The first coming : how the kingdom of God became Christianity by Thomas Sheehan( Book )

21 editions published between 1986 and 1990 in English and held by 1,201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author makes original and significant contributions: to the shaping of a post-modern and post-liberal interpretation of Jesus' life and work ; to a conception of God, his place in history, and his involvement with mankind that derives directly from Jesus' words; and to a fresh understanding of the function of religion itself
Logic : the question of truth by Martin Heidegger( )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 1,106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Martin Heidegger's 1925-26 lectures on truth and time provided much of the basis for his momentous work, Being and Time. Not published until 1976 as volume. 21 of the Complete Works, three months before Heidegger's death, this work is central to Heidegger's overall project of reinterpreting Western thought in terms of time and truth. The text shows the degree to which Aristotle underlies Heidegger's hermeneutical theory of meaning. It also contains Heidegger's first published critique of Husserl and takes major steps toward establishing the temporal bases of logic and truth. Thomas Sheehan's elegant and insightful translation offers English-speaking readers access to this fundamental text for the first time
Making sense of Heidegger : a paradigm shift by Thomas Sheehan( )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 992 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this brilliant contribution to Heidegger scholarship, Thomas Sheehan presents his view of the entire trajectory of Heideggers philosophizing as a phenomenological investigation of the meaning and source of Being (the "clearing") that which allows entities to show up for us as meaningful. Sheehans assiduously phenomenological interpretation of the Heideggerian corpus lends itself beautifully both to teaching Heidegger and to interdisciplinary inquiry." (Robert D. Stolorow Ph. D., author of World, Affectivity, Trauma: Heidegger and Post-Cartesian Psychoanalysis)
Heidegger : the man and the thinker by Thomas Sheehan( Book )

20 editions published between 1979 and 2017 in English and held by 677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many people consider Martin Heidegger the most important German philosopher of the twentieth century. He is indisputably controversial and influential. Athough much has been written about Heidegger, this may be the best single volume covering his life, career, and thought. For all its breadth and complexity, Heidegger's perspective is quite simple: he is concerned with the meaning of Being as disclosure. Heidegger's life was almost as simple. He was a German professor, except for a brief but significant period in which he supported the Nazi regime. While that departure from philosophy continues to haunt his name and work, one must question whether his thought from 1912 to 1976 should be measured by the yardstick of his politics from May, 1933, through February, 1934. Th is anthology addresses his complex but simple thought and his simple but complex life. In a real sense, Sheehan claims, there is no content to Heidegger's topic and legacy, only a method. But method must not be taken to mean a technique or procedure for philosophical thinking. Rather, the topic of Heidegger's thought and his pursuit of that topic, the "what" and the "how," are one and the same thing. Heidegger writes, "Alles ist Weg," "Everything is way," and man's Being is to be on-the-way in essential movement. Heidegger, argues in our essence we humans are the topic and the point is not to be led there so much as to come to know what we already know and to become what we already are. This brilliant collection confirms this truism, and is an excellent introduction to the work of this seminal thinker."--Provided by publisher
Karl Rahner, the philosophical foundations by Thomas Sheehan( Book )

Becoming Heidegger : on the trail of his early occasional writings, 1910-1927 by Martin Heidegger( Book )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the decades since Martin Heidegger's death, many of his early writings--notes and talks, essays and reviews--have made it into print, but in such scattershot fashion and erratic translation as to mitigate their usefulness for understanding the development, direction, and ultimate shape of his work. This timely collection, edited by two preeminent Heidegger scholars, brings together in English translation the most philosophical of Heidegger's earliest occasional writings from 1910 to the end of 1927. These important philosophical documents fill out the context in which the early Heidegger wrote his major works and provide the background against which they appeared. Accompanied by incisive commentary, these pieces from Heidegger's student days, his early Freiburg period, and the time of his Marburg lecture courses will contribute substantially to rethinking the making and meaning of Being and Time. The contents are of a depth and quality that make this volume the collection for those interested in Heidegger's work prior to his masterwork. The book will also serve those concerned with Heidegger's relation to such figures as Aristotle, Dilthey, Husserl, Jaspers, and Löwith, as well as scholars whose interests are more topically centered on questions of history, logic, religion, and truth. Important in their own right, these pieces will also prove particularly useful to students of Heidegger's thought and of twentieth-century philosophy in general
Psychological and transcendental phenomenology and the confrontation with Heidegger (1927-1931) : the Encyclopaedia Britannica article, the Amsterdam lectures "Phenomenology and anthropology," and Husserl's marginal notes in Being and time, and Kant and the problem of metaphysics by Edmund Husserl( Book )

Development of improved shear connection rules in composite beams (DISCCO) final report( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This Final Report describes the technical activities carried out under this RFCS contract RFSR CT 2012{u2014}00030 which is concerned with developing new rules for the partial shear connection of composite beams. Based on a comprehensive series of push tests on deck profiles of 56 to 80 mm height with 19 mm and 22 mm diameter shear connectors, a proposed standard for the push-out test regime has been prepared which permits use of a transverse loading of 5% of the applied shear load. Ten short span beam tests were performed in order to verify that plastic analysis principles may be used for beams with low degrees of shear connection using shear connector resistances obtained from the push tests. A 15.3 m span composite cellular beam with 36% degree of shear connection was tested in order to examine the extreme case of partial shear connection and it was found that end slips up to 20 mm could be developed at the plastic bending resistance of the composite beam for the particular degree of shear connection. An 11.2 m span composite asymmetric beam with 33% degree of shear connection was also tested, and again the failure load exactly matched the predicted bending capacity to Eurocode 4. As the final part of the testing programme, a 10 m x 4 m floor plate consisting of 9 beams and 6 columns was tested to investigate the interaction effects between the secondary and primary beams and also the effect of the reinforcement around the shear connectors at edge beams. Numerical studies with regard to modelling of composite beams were used for predictions related to the short span and long span beam tests. The numerical analyses also extended to the local behaviour of the shear connectors particularly when affected by concrete cracking and high strains due to concrete crushing. Studies on the relaxation in shear connection rules for composite beams that are partially utilised in bending and for cellular beams have been performed which have led to easy to use results
