Heraclitus is the first English translation of Volume 55 of Martin Heideggers Gesamtausgabe. This important volume consists of two lecture courses given by Heidegger at the University of Freiburg over the Summers of 1943 and 1944 on the thought of Heraclitus. These lectures shed important light on Heideggers understanding of Greek thinking, as well as his understanding of Germany, the history of philosophy, the Western world, and their shared destinies.

An incredibly rich text, with much to offer to anyone interested in this early Greek philosopher or in Heideggers pre-occupation with the Greeks. * Philosophy in Review * The lecture courses about Heraclitus (summer 1943 and 1944) represent the real artistry of Heideggers lecturing. This artistry consists of a unique intertwining of philosophical, political, and even poetical elements. Heideggers interpretation of Heraclitus fragments demonstrate an inspiring access to the beginning of Occidental thinking. The translators present a remarkable and thoughtful translation of Heideggers intense German style. Reading Heidegger reading Heraclitus is a pleasure. * Peter Trawny, Director of the Heidegger-Institute, University of Wuppertal, Germany * Heideggers Heraclitus lecture courses from 1943 and 1944 focus respectively on the notions of physis (nature) and logos (logic). They give important insight into Heideggers attempt to think these notions ever more inceptually in the context of his being-historical thinking, and thereby to find a way to reawaken a more originary sense of being. This thoughtful translation makes accessible for the English reader Heideggers creative and central engagement with Heraclitus. * Daniela Vallega-Neu, Associate Professor of Philosophy, University of Oregon, USA * This long awaited translation was worth the wait. J. Goesser Assaiante and S. Montgomery Ewegen have provided us with a fluid and faithful translation of two of Heideggers most sustained and important lecture courses on early Greek thinking. These manuscripts were written in 1943 and 1944, a pivotal time in Heideggers development. They enable one to witness up close Heideggers attempt to work out, by way of radically original translations and interpretations of Heraclituss fragments, his understanding of the inception of the history of Occidental philosophy. At the same time, readers are invited to follow Heidegger in his attempt, by way of recovering and rethinking the deepest insights of Heraclitus and other early Greek thinkers, to think out beyond the end of the history of metaphysics that devolved from their greatness. * Bret W. Davis, Professor of Philosophy, Loyola University Maryland, USA * The translation of Heideggers most sustained engagement with Heraclitus represents a significant contribution to Heidegger studies. These two lecture courses richly fill in Heideggers engagement with early Greek thinking and include provocative often politically revelatory - discussions of Nietzsche, technology, friendship and history. The translators have succeeded in capturing Heideggers challenging wordplay in a manner that opens up the Greek original in new and unexpected ways while remaining accessible and lucid in English. * Julia Ireland, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Whitman College, USA * These two lecture courses on Heraclitus are Heidegger at his most provocative. More than a commentary, here Heidegger attempts to think through Heraclitus, with wonderfully startling results for our appreciation of each. The sustained attention to the pre-Socratic sense of both physis and logos is unmatched in his oeuvre. With this long awaited translation of a central volume in Heidegger's Gesamtausgabe, the translators have done the English reader a great service not just the reader of Heidegger, but of Heraclitus as well. * Andrew J. Mitchell, Winship Distinguished Research Professor of Philosophy, Emory University, USA * These two lecture courses, devoted to what Heidegger called the first [but incomplete] inception of Western philosophy, provide his most extended treatment of Heraclitean physis and logos as accounting for how things emerge into meaningful presence. Scholars Assaiante and Ewegen are to be highly commended for their meticulous rendering of this important text into eminently readable English. * Thomas Sheehan, Professor of Religious Studies and, by courtesy, of Philo
