9780826480811: Mindfulness (Athlone Contemporary European Thinkers)

This brand new translation of Martin Heidgger's Mindfulness (Besinnung) makes available in English for the first time Heidegger's second major being-historical treatise. Here Heidegger returns to and elaborates in detail many of the individual dimensions of the historically self-showing and transforming allotments of be-ing. In addition to the main text, this volume also includes two further important texts, A Retrospective Look at the Pathway (1937/8) and 'The Wish and the Will (On Preserving What is Attempted)' (1937/8), in which Heidegger surveys his unpublished works, gives instructions for their eventual publication, talks about his relationship to Catholic and Protestant Christianity, and reflects on his life's path. This is a major new translation of a key text from one of the most important thinkers of the twentieth century.
This volume is translated by Parvis Emad, Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at DePaul University, Chicago, and Thomas Kalary, Professor of Philosophy at Suvidya College, Bangalore.

Review quotes to follow

'This is a central text for coming to terms with Heidegger's thinking ... The translation itself mirrors and maintains the haunting character of the German text. The translators' Foreword is a masterpiece in setting the stage and opening up the possibilities for the English to stay true to the Heideggerian project of thinking the truth of being.' - Kenneth Maly, University of Wisconsin - La Crosse, USA.
