Description

Featuring essays by renowned scholars Michael J. Hyde, Theodore Kisiel, Mark Michalski, Otto Pöggeler, and Nancy S. Struever, this book provides the definitive treatment of Martin Heidegger's 1924 lecture course, "Basic Concepts of Aristotelian Philosophy." A deep and original interview with philosopher Hans-Georg Gadamer, who attended the lecture course, is also included. Conducted over the course of three years, just prior to his death in 2002, the interview is Gadamer's last major philosophical statement. By carefully considering this lecture course in the context of Heidegger's life and work, the contributors compel us to reconsider the history and theory of rhetoric, as well as the history of twentieth-century continental philosophy.

Review quote

"This delightful volume does a superb job of preparing the reader for a study of Heidegger's lectures on Aristotle's Rhetoric. These are stimulating essays that not only convey the background information necessary for understanding Heidegger's lectures, but also display something of the excitement felt by the students when they heard them."
