Mainstream philosophers...have never come up with a satisfactory account that translates Heidegger into their own language...That should change very soon, with the publication this year of Hubert Dreyfus's Being-in-the-World. The fruit of 25 years of teaching the subject at Berkeley, it is undoubtedly one of the clearest accounts of Heidegger's thought to date.(Anthony Gottlieb New York Times Book Review)
The philosophical world has been waiting for this book for a long time. It is an indispensable book for anyone who wants to understand Being-in-Time, one of the great path-breaking works of 20th century philosophy. Dreyfus's commentary, unsurpassed for its philosphical grasp and clarity of detail, has made Heidegger accessible to the English-speaking reader as never before.(Charles Taylor, Professor of Philosophy, McGill University)
Hubert Dreyfus is without equal at explaining Heidegger's philosophy without distorting it. If only Heidegger had made himself as clear as Dreyfus makes him he would long ago have established himself in the English-speaking world as one of the greatest philosopher's of the twentieth century.(Bryan Magee, Hon. Senior Research Fellow in the History of Ideas, King's College, University of London)
