"The aim of Existence and Being is the reawakening of the fundamental question: what is meant by 'Being'?"
Heidegger is without question a quintessential philosopher of the first half of the 20th century and this volume was his introduction to the English speaking world. The first two essays deal with the essence of metaphysics, the second two with the essence of poetry.
