"[Heidegger's] greatest work... essential for all collections." —Choice

"... students of Heidegger will surely find this book indispensable." —Library Journal

Contributions to Philosophy (From Enowning), written in 1936-38 and first published in 1989 as Beiträge zur Philosophie (Vom Ereignis), is Heidegger’s most ground-breaking work after the publication of Being and Time in 1927. If Being and Time is perceived as undermining modern metaphysics, Contributions undertakes to reshape the very project of thinking.
