In this lecture course presented in 1937-38, Heidegger's task is to reassert the question of the essence of truth, not as a problem of logic, but precisely as the basic question of philosophy. These lectures were given at the time that Heidegger was composing his second magnum opus, BeitrAge zur Philosophie, and provide the single best introduction to that complex and crucial text.
