About the Author

Lee Braver is Associate Professor and Chair of Philosophy at Hiram College, USA. His previous publications include A Thing of This World: A History of Continental Anti-Realism (Northwestern UP, 2007).


"[Braver's] thoughtful expositions help the reader see and even appreciate the rationale behind Heidegger's wording, not only in terms of the particular essay on hand but also in view of questions provoking Heidegger's thinking as a whole. With expert and illuminating commentaries - "roadmaps," as Braver aptly dubs them - to Heidegger's Basic Writings, Braver's text is bound to become a major resource for introducing - and for reconsidering - these ground-breaking essays." - Daniel Dahlstrom, Boston University, USA
"[Braver] offers a commentary that is remarkably clear, judicious and helpful without being in the least oversimplifying. The book is just what one would hope for in a work of this sort, providing reliable guidance to the beginner and mature insight for the experienced. I highly recommend it." - John D. Caputo, Syracuse University, USA
"This book is an ideal way to get an overall orientation to Heidegger's later essays, one of the most important bodies of philosophical work in the 20th Century. Braver has an impressive grasp of these influential, original, but often difficult and disorienting works. His approach is clear, free of jargon, and brings out the essential points of each work, rendering this commentary the best available supplement for undergraduate and graduate courses on Later Heidegger." - Herbert Dreyfus
