"It is a rare privilege to be able to discover a great book twice, once originally in the author's language and then again, more richly, more accessibly, in one's own....The English text "is "the text of the original...no less than what Heidegger made in the German."--Harold Alderman on Volume I, "Southwestern Journal of Philosophy""A major contribution to our understanding of each of these thinkers."--"Booklist"
