About the Authors
  • This is the first time that a seminal collection of fourteen essays by Martin Heidegger (originally published in German under the title Wegmarken) has appeared in English in its complete form. The volume includes new or first-time translations of seven essays, and thoroughly revised, updated versions of the other seven. They will prove an essential resource for all students of Heidegger, whether they work in philosophy, literary theory, religious studies or intellectual history.

    • First ever complete translation of seminal collection of his essays spanning the years 1919–1961 - many key essays are included
    • Endorsement by Rorty stresses that the book is a good introduction to the later philosophy of Heidegger

    "McNeill...has done scholars of contemporay thought a great service by bringing together for the first time in English a translation of Heidegger's classic collection of 14 pieces Wegmarken, as it is now found in volume 9 of his Gesamtausabe....All the translations are uniformly excellent, making this text an excellent choice for all collections supporting undergraduate and graduate programs in philosophy."
