Editorial Reviews

Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

"The essays in this volume... provid[e] worthwhile reading for anyone coming to Heidegger's work on language for the first time, and some help for those who have been thinking about, with, or against him already." —Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

Choice

"The 14 original essays in this indispensable volume trace the transformations in Heidegger's thinking about language and discourse, hiddenness and unhiddenness, and, most importantly, the limits of language and the significance of silence.... Highly recommended." —Choice

François Raffoul

"A volume that reappraises the role of language in Heidegger's thought is a welcome addition to the literature." —François Raffoul, Louisiana State University

Andrew Mitchell

"The volume addresses a topic that is of great importance to philosophers today as Heidegger's views on language are a point of contact between the continental and analytic traditions of philosophy, as well as a central part of his own thinking of being." —Andrew Mitchell, Emory University
