Review:

From the reviews:

“The volume of essays dedicated to Emad is an emblem of the translatorial efforts that had an impact on the metalanguage of Translation Studies as a discipline whilst simultaneously becoming essential translations for those intended audiences who needed to access Heidegger’s works in translation.” (Federico M. Federici, Year's Work in Critical and Cultural Theory, Vol. 21 (1), 2013)
