"[Heidegger's] greatest work... essential for all collections." -Choice

"... students of Heidegger will surely find this book indispensable." -Library Journal

Contributions to Philosophy (From Enowning), written in 1936-38 and first published in 1989 as Beiträge zur Philosophie (Vom Ereignis), is Heidegger's most ground-breaking work after the publication of Being and Time in 1927. If Being and Time is perceived as undermining modern metaphysics, Contributions undertakes to reshape the very project of thinking.

Parvis Emad is Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at DePaul University and the founding coeditor (with Kenneth Maly) of Heidegger Studies.

Editorial Reviews

"Publication of this volume is the most important event in Heidegger scholarship in English since the 1962 publication of the first English translation of Sein und Zeit. Although a new translation of Being and Time has appeared (CH, Mar'97), it is difficult to imagine that this inventive and highly readable translation of Beiträge (Beitrage) zur Philosophie (vom Ereignis), by Emad (emer., DePaul Univ.) and Maly (Univ. of Wisconsin-LaCrosse), will ever be superseded. Indeed, Being and Time appears almost conventional in light of the global transformation of ordinary language that characterizes Contributions to Philosophy. Emad and Maly acknowledge that the German original itself is not readily accessible to German readers. Since the 1989 posthumous publication of the Beiträge (Beitrage), the relation of this 1936-38 manuscript to Heidegger's thinking has become a major topic. Contributions is about the turn toward Seyn (be-ing-the archaic spelling of Sein-being), which implies a turn toward the resistant enigma of another origin. The major decisions in this translation (e.g., Ereignis as enowning instead of appropriation; Wesung as swaying instead of essencing) make Heidegger's thinking more accessible to English speakers. This translation will contribute greatly to establishing Contributions as Heidegger's second masterpiece and his greatest work. Essential for all collections. General readers; upper-division undergraduates and above." -N. Lukacher, University of Illinois at Chicago, Choice, July 2000
