Overview

A particularly insightful commentary on Heidegger’s thinking, as well as a fascinating look at Gadamer himself.

The combination of author and subject matter found here makes an unusually interesting text on the Continental European Philosophy of the twentieth century. As Heidegger’s former student, colleague and lifelong friend, Gadamer offers a particularly insightful commentary on Heidegger’s thinking. Not only do the essays focus on Heidegger’s thought, but they also often begin with a description of the philosophical scene in which he first appeared, giving the reader a genuine feel for the kind of impact he made. But the essays do not leave off in the past; rather, they lead into the present, giving Heidegger a voice which continues to have a revolutionary impact.

The text does not only provide a commentary on Heidegger; it also provides a fascinating look at Gadamer himself. The narratives provide us with an intimate look at both the author and his hermeneutics at work, and his commentary on Heidegger’s thought is a commentary on his own thought as well.
