"For an acquaintance with the thought of Heidegger, What Is Called Thinking? is as important as Being and Time. It is the only systematic presentation of the thinker's late philosophy and . . . it is perhaps the most exciting of his books."--Hannah Arendt
Martin Heidegger (1889-1976) was born in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. He studied at the University of Freiburg and became a professor at the University of Marburg in 1932. After publishing his his magnum opus,Being and Time(1927), he returned to Freiburg to assume the chair of philosophy upon Husserl's retirement.

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.
