..". one of Heidegger's most important and extraordinary works.... indispensable for anyone interested in Heidegger's thought as well as in current trends in hermeneutics, ethics, and political philosophy." -- Interpretation

"Kant and the Problem of Metaphysics is among the most important readings in this century of Kant's Critique of Pure Reason. This authoritative English translation will play an important role in determining Heidegger's reputation in the coming years." -- Choice

"Heidegger's interpretation of Kant remains a challenging way to address the issues that both Kant and Heidegger saw as crucial.... In reading Kant and the Problem of Metaphysics] we can struggle with some basic issues of human existence in the company of two great minds." -- International Philosophical Quarterly

Since its original publication in 1929, Martin Heidegger's provocative book on Kant's Critique of Pure Reason has attracted much attention both as an important contribution to twentieth-century Kant scholarship and as a pivotal work in Heidegger's own development after Being and Time. The work is significant not only for its illuminating assessment of Kant's thought but also for its elaboration of themes first broached in Being and Time, especially the problem of how Heidegger proposed to enact his destruction of the metaphysical tradition and the role that his reading of Kant would play therein.

With every passing year . . . this work continues to grow in significance and stature. Publication of this new translation could not be more timely . . . a finely nuanced translation . . . This authoritative English translation will play an important role in determining Heidegger's reputation in the coming years. An essential acquisition for all collections.--Choice
