What distinguishes this book from many others is that it does not attempt to merely give an account of Heidegger’s philosophy. It rather tries to reflect on the “sense” of the traditional determinations of Being, essence, and of the essence of man in Aristotle and Hegel in order to put into relief the “other” sense of those basic traits of Being, essence, and of the essence of man which Heidegger seeks to develop, in order thereby to initiate a thinking that might carry on beyond Heidegger.


Werner Marx (1910-1994) was a German philosopher and Heidegger expert. He taught at the University of Freiburg.

Theodore Kisiel is a professor emeritus of Philosophy at Northern Illinois University.
