Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

This is great fun--an assessment of great composers and their works made by other composers who were their peers. The 78 short chapters each focus on one composer and relate the comments (complimentary or caustic) made about him by as many as twenty other composers. The chapters are arranged alphabetically by composer, and include the years of birth and death, as well as an introductory sentence. A guide to the reading of Heidegger's Being and time. Gelven (philosophy, Northern Ill. U.) provides a thorough and authoritative approach to one of the most significant philosophical works of the twentieth century. Cloth edition ($28.00), not seen by UPBN.

Synopsis:

This thoroughly revised commentary uses the most recent insights in Heidegger studies to lead the reader through the sometimes difficult text of Being and Time. The clearly marked section-by-section analysis explains the structure of Being and Time, illuminates obscure passages, and presents examples of human experience to elucidate Heidegger's points. So that the reader does not lose sight of the main argument, Gelven summarizes the relevant concepts of Heidegger's chapters prior to his explicit interpretation of each section. Even though Gelven's commentary is primarily intended to be used as a supplement to Being and Time, the text also serves as an articulate study in Heideggerian philosophy.
