About the Author

Martin Heidegger (1889-1976) is regarded as one of the twentieth century's most important philosophers. Gregory Fried is Professor of Philosophy at Suffolk University, Boston, USA. Richard Polt is Professor of Philosophy at Xavier University, Cincinnati, USA. Contributors: Marion Heinz, Theodore Kisiel, Peter Eli Gordon, Robert Bernasconi, and Slavoj Zizek.


There is no more disturbing or haunting event in philosophy's recent history than that defined by Heidegger's political activities in the 1930s. Those activities and the questions they raise will cast a shadow for a long time to come. The protocols of Heidegger's seminar - precisely translated and thoughtfully introduced - coupled with the excellent critical essays that constitute this volume are decisive texts for those who seek to understand this difficult matter. -- Dennis J. Schmidt, The Pennsylvania State University
This collection ... is an important document in the battle for determining Heidegger's legacy as either one of the most profound minds of the 20th century, or a charlatan abusing his philosophical credentials to provide intellectual justification for Nazism. With this accessible translation re-published in paperback form, English audiences can read the primary text and wade into this important debate in Heidegger scholarship for themselves ... [T]his publication does a service in filling a vital part of the picture. -- Richard J. Elliott * Philosophy *
