Translators’ Introduction / German-English Lexicon / The Question Concerning the Thing
This superb translation by two experts in Heidegger studies will be a most welcome addition for students of Heidegger’s development, as it marks his burgeoning interest in what a thing is, his continued reflections on modern scientific thought, and his final sustained foray into Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason.— Daniel O. Dahlstrom, Professor of Philosophy, Boston University
The magician from Messkirch at the height of his early pedagogical powers, spellbindingly deconstructing the history of Western metaphysics and reconstructing Kant’s first Critique, the most important philosophical work since Plato’s Republic. Long quietly influential on both Heidegger and Kant scholarship, Heidegger’s fascinating work is finally available in a clear and compelling English translation that does justice to the original, thanks to the meticulous efforts of Reid and Crowe.

This lecture course marks a crucial step in Heidegger’s thinking of things. Focusing on modern metaphysics, Heidegger powerfully details the shift from Aristotelian to Newtonian physics, close reads Kant on the nature of the thing, and concludes with a provocative interpretation of transcendentalism that informs Heidegger’s own thinking. The new translation is crisp and fresh, bringing Heidegger’s profound thoughts to a new audience.
— Andrew J. Mitchell, Winship Distinguished Research Professor of Philosophy, Emory University
