Hard Times: An Authoritative Text, Backgrounds, Sources, and Contemporary Reactions, Criticism

Being and Time (Contemporary Continental Philosophy)

A new definitive translation of Heidegger s most important work br br The publication of Martin Heidegger s magnum opus Being and Time in signaled an intellectual event of the first order and had an impact in fields far beyond that of philosophy proper Among the most complex and original analyses of the character of philosophic inquiry and the relation of the possibility of such inquiry to the human situation Being and Time has long been recognized as a landmark work of the twentieth century Still provocative and much disputed Heidegger s text has been taken as the inspiration for a variety of innovative movements in fields ranging from psychoanalysis literary theory existentialism ethics hermeneutics and theology A work that disturbs the traditions of philosophizing that it inherits Being and Time raises questions about the end of philosophy and the possibilities for thinking liberated from the presumptions of metaphysics br br This new translation by Joan Stambaugh takes account of English language Heidegger research since the first translation of Being and Time in The Stambaugh translation captures the vital relation to language that animates Heidegger s original text Through this translation elements of Being and Time that were not so clearly evident hitherto should become more apparent to readers of the English text The new translation of key notions here should serve as the standard for Heidegger studies to come br br Stambaugh s new version has large virtues and improves on the only alternative It is best suited to beginning or general audiences These will find its spare and unobtrusive apparatus which lets the text stand out more simply on its own and not bristling with flagged complications a decisive virtue As a supplement or for comparison or as a vehicle for reacquainting oneself with the work it gives excellent service TLS br br This new translation offers the text in a more precise and understandable English than earlier editions Library Journal br br Stambaugh s greatest merit as a translator is her ability to render the most difficult of Heidegger s prose into an English that remains both elegant and as faithful as possible to the

Being and Time (Contemporary Continental Philosophy)

A new definitive translation of Heidegger s most important work br br The publication of Martin Heidegger s magnum opus Being and Time in signaled an intellectual event of the first order and had an impact in fields far beyond that of philosophy proper Among the most complex and original analyses of the character of philosophic inquiry and the relation of the possibility of such inquiry to the human situation Being and Time has long been recognized as a landmark work of the twentieth century Still provocative and much disputed Heidegger s text has been taken as the inspiration for a variety of innovative movements in fields ranging from psychoanalysis literary theory existentialism ethics hermeneutics and theology A work that disturbs the traditions of philosophizing that it inherits Being and Time raises questions about the end of philosophy and the possibilities for thinking liberated from the presumptions of metaphysics br br This new translation by Joan Stambaugh takes account of English language Heidegger research since the first translation of Being and Time in The Stambaugh translation captures the vital relation to language that animates Heidegger s original text Through this translation elements of Being and Time that were not so clearly evident hitherto should become more apparent to readers of the English text The new translation of key notions here should serve as the standard for Heidegger studies to come br br Stambaugh s new version has large virtues and improves on the only alternative It is best suited to beginning or general audiences These will find its spare and unobtrusive apparatus which lets the text stand out more simply on its own and not bristling with flagged complications a decisive virtue As a supplement or for comparison or as a vehicle for reacquainting oneself with the work it gives excellent service TLS br br This new translation offers the text in a more precise and understandable English than earlier editions Library
