Companion to Heidegger’s Contributions to Philosophy

Edited by Charles E. Scott, Susan Schoenbohm, Daniela Vallega-Neu, and Alejandro
Vallega

A key to unlocking one of Heidegger’s most difficult and important works.

The publication of the first English translation of Martin
Heidegger’s Beiträge zur Philosophie (Vom Ereignis) marked a significant event for
Heidegger studies. Considered by scholars to be his most important work after Being and Time,
Contributions to Philosophy (From Enowning) elaborates what Heidegger calls
"being-historical-thinking," a project in which he undertakes to reshape what it means both to think and to be. Contributions is an indispensable book for scholars and students of
Heidegger, but it is also one of his most difficult because of its aphoristic style and unusual language. In this Companion 14 eminent Heidegger scholars share strategies for reading and understanding this challenging work. Overall approaches for becoming familiar with Heidegger’s unique language and thinking are included, along with detailed readings of key sections of the work.
Experienced readers and those coming to the text for the first time will find the Companion an invaluable guide to this pivotal text in Heidegger’s philosophical corpus.

Contributors include Walter A. Brogan, David Crownfield, Parvis Emad,
Günter Figal, Kenneth Maly, William McNeill, Richard Polt, John Sallis, Susan Schoenbohm,
Charles E. Scott, Dennis J. Schmidt, Alejandro Vallega, Daniela Vallega-Neu, and
Friedrich-Wilhelm von Herrmann.

Charles E. Scott is Professor of Philosophy at
Pennsylvania State University. He is author of The Question of Ethics, On the Advantages and
Disadvantages of Ethics and Politics (both Indiana University Press), and The Time of
Memory.

Susan Schoenbohm has taught philosophy at Vanderbilt University, The
University of the South, and Pennsylvania State University. She has published several articles on
Heidegger, contemporary Continental thought, ancient Greek thought, and ancient Asian thought.

Daniela Vallega-Neu teaches philosophy at California State
University, Stanislaus. She is author of Die Notwendigkeit der Grundung in Zeitalter der
Deconstruction.
