Editorial Reviews

Phillip Braunstein

"Heidegger is struggling to articulate his thinking, and many sections in this work are illuminating to some of his most difficult discussions in the Contributions and his thinking about Greek metaphysics, language, and poetry and philosophy." —Phillip Braunstein, Loyola Marymount University

From the Publisher
"Heidegger is struggling to articulate his thinking, and many sections in this work are illuminating to some of his most difficult discussions in the Contributions and his thinking about Greek metaphysics, language, and poetry and philosophy." —Phillip Braunstein, Loyola Marymount University

"What is most remarkable about Richard Rojcewicz’s translation is its timeliness.... As a translation, the volume is better than fine and it has no doubt benefitted from Rojcewicz and Vallega-Neu’s
translation of Beiträge zur Philosophie (Vom Ereignis)." —Continental Philosophy Review
