Overview

This new edition of one of Heidegger’s most important works features a revised and expanded translators’ introduction and an updated translation, as well as the first English versions of Heidegger’s draft of a portion of the text and of his later critique of his own lectures. Other new features include an afterword by Petra Jaeger, editor of the German text.
 
“This revised edition of the translation of Heidegger’s 1935 lectures, with its inclusion of helpful new materials, superbly augments the excellent translation provided in the first edition. The result is a richly rewarding volume, to be recommended to every student of Heidegger’s works, whether a novice or a long-time reader.”—Daniel Dahlstrom, Boston University
 

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
<:st> Heidegger's one of the most significant philosophical works of the 20th century, combines a powerful reinterpretation of Greek thought with a sweeping vision of Western history, and offers some clue as to the reasons for Heidegger's support of the Nazi regime. This new translation provides conventional translations of Greek passages that Heidegger translated unconventionally. There are also extensive notes, a German-English glossary, and an introduction that discusses the history of the text, its basic themes, and its place in Heidegger's oeuvre. Fried teaches philosophy and humanities at Boston University. Polt teaches philosophy at Xavier University. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
