Synopsis

Companion to Heidegger's Contributions to Philosophy by Charles E. Scott

Companion to Heidegger's Contributions to PhilosophyEdited by Charles E. Scott, Susan Schoenbohm, Daniela Vallega-Neu, and Alejandro VallegaA key to unlocking one of Heidegger's most difficult and important works.The publication of the first English translation of Martin Heidegger's Beitrage 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, Gunter Figal, Kenneth Maly, William McNeill, Richard Polt, John Sallis, Susan Schoenbohm, Charles E. Scott, Dennis J.
