Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The 31 essays in this volume make an important, illuminating contribution to explaining the complexity of Heidegger's thought and the strongly idiomatic nature of his language and conceptual framework. Highly recommended."

“This volume of papers on Heidegger is unrivalled in its scope and quality … Its comprehensiveness makes it the most useful secondary volume on Heidegger now available.”
John Richardson, New York University
