Review quote

"Perhaps the most generally accessible text that Heidegger published.... The translation is superb." -Key Reporter "For all students and scholars, Basic Problems will provide the "missing link" between Husserl and Heidegger, between phenomenology and Being and Time." -Teaching Philosophy "This volume belongs in every collection on Heidegger and is required reading for anyone interested in this major thinker." -Religious Studies Review "In Albert Hofstadter's excellent translation, we can listen in as Heidegger clearly and patiently explains... the ontological difference." -Times Literary Supplementshow more
