Product description


What is most remarkable about Richard Rojcewicz's translation is its timeliness. . . . As a translation, the volume is better than fine and it has no doubt benefitted from Rojcewicz and Vallega-Neu's translation of Beiträge zur Philosophie (Vom Ereignis).--Continental Philosophy Review

The Event takes the reader who is willing to follow the intricacies of Heidegger's text, into dark and impenetrable dimensions of thought and experience at the limits of language and intelligibility.68.1 Sept. 2014--Review of Metaphysics

Product Description

This elegantly translated collection of Heidegger’s private later writings is “illuminating to some of his most difficult discussions.” (Phillip Braunstein, Loyola Marymount College).
Martin Heidegger’s The Event offers the most in-depth articulation of his later work’s most foundational concept, as well as his most substantial self-critique of his Contributions to Philosophy: Of the Event. Written between 1936 and 1944, and published posthumously as volume 71 of his Complete Works, The Event collects Heidegger’s private writings in response to his Contributions.
Richard Rojcewicz’s faithful and straightforward translation offers the English-speaking reader intimate contact with the author’s process of formulating some of his most important concepts. This book lays out how the Event is to be understood and ties it closely to looking, showing, self-manifestation, and the self-unveiling of the gods.
