This beautifully bound and boxed set places before the reader a huge collection of critical essays on the philosopher widely regarded as this century's preeminent metaphysician. Four volumes contain 66 articles, fully one-quarter of them original contributions. Macann (philosophy, Regents Coll., London) contributed four original essays himself; he has also done yeoman's work in translating many others from German and French, as well as providing lengthy introductions to each volume. Represented here are such prominent Heideggerians as Gadamer, Kockelmans, Macquarrie, and Poeggeler, in addition to other important scholars less well known in the English-speaking world. The majority of the essays are of recent vintage, from the 1980s and 1990s. Their range shows how influential and fecund Heidegger's thought has been, not only in philosophy, phenomenology, and existentialism, but also in language theory, aesthetics, theology, psychology, natural science, and technology. Highly recommended.- Leon H. Brody, U.S. Office of Personnel Mgt. Lib., Washington, D.C.

Heidegger's place in the history of philosophy can be much better judged in light of these fifteen well-chosen essays.... All-inall, a fine collection whihc, taken as a whole, leaves open-ended for discussion many points of interpretation, not only of Heidegger but of the other philosophers mentioned..Canadian Philosophical Reviews
The present, handsomely bound four-volume set, bringing together many of the major interpreters, translators and commentators on Heidegger, should do a lot to give shape to future discussion of this philosopher.Canadian Philosophical Review
