Review quote

"Stambaugh's new translation of Identitat und Differenz is a welcome addition to the growing body of English translations of Heidegger. The special merit of Stambaugh's work is that the translator was a student of Heidegger's and was able to prepare this translation in consultation with him. Her work should be particularly well received in view of the very poor quality of the previous translation of the same work, published for some reason under the title Essays in Metaphysics," - Stanley O. Hoerr and Staff, The Review of Metaphysics.show more
