Summary This work by renowned scholar and commentator Otto Poggeler brings together papers and essays written between 1978 and 1989. Never before published in English, all have been newly edited. In the introductory essay, Poggeler reviews Heidegger's impact on contemporary thought, ranging over many fields, and assesses Heidegger's significance for twentieth-century philosophy. The essays chronicle an account of the central themes in Heidegger's philosophy, of the role of the National Socialist revolution and the Third Reich in Heidegger's life, Heidegger's involvement in and attachment to the revolution, the implications of this fact for our reflection on the importance of his thought, and especially the significance of Heidegger's Contributions to Philosophy
