Summary "This new edition of The Cambridge Companion to Heidegger brings to the fore new works that appear in Heidegger's collected works, as well as new approaches to scholarship that have emerged since the original publication of the first edition. It presents new essays by distinguished Heidegger scholars Julian Young, William Blattner, Taylor Carman, and Mark Wrathall. Their essays cover topics such as Heidegger's conception of phenomenology, his relation to Kant and Husserl, his conception of the a priori, his account of truth, his stand on the realism/anti-realism debate, and his later conceptions of "dwelling," "place," and the "fourfold." This edition includes a new preface by the editor, revised versions of several essays from the first edition, and an exhaustive and up-to-date bibliography, providing guidance for both newcomers and established scholars to the most recent sources on Heidegger's work."--BOOK JACKET
