Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like a Mystery Novel I had read Heidegger in French for many years and had found him to be very difficult to understand. I finally committed myself to reading him in English and found it a delight and a pleasure to read. I found that the English language is an excellent vehicule for the German Language and found the book to be extremely well translated with the effect that it now read like a mystery novel. What is called Thinking? is with Being and Time probably the two books which best illustrate the philosophical thought of Martin Heidegger. This is a five star selection.
