Item description for A Guide to Heidegger's Being and Time (Suny Series in Contemporary Continental Philosophy) by Magda King & John Llewelyn...

This is the most comprehensive commentary on both Divisions of Heidegger's Being and Time, making it the essential guide for newcomers and specialists alike. Beginning with a non-technical exposition of the question Heidegger poses--"What does it mean to be?"--and keeping that question in view, it gradually increases the closeness of focus on the text. Citing Joan Stambaugh's translation, the author explains the key notions of the original with the help of concrete illustrations and reference to certain of the most relevant works Heidegger composed both before and after the publication of Being and Time.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Guide to Heidegger's Being and Time (Suny Series in Contemporary Continental Philosophy)?

A Beginner's Guide to S&Z  Jul 3, 2007
As the backcover promised, King's lectures/commentary are quite easy to understand and move at a brisque but manageable pace. She doesn't dwell on minute issues in the text, but chooses instead to survey (generally) all the major (and quite difficult) concepts which Heidegger introduces in S&Z. At times I wished that King discussed matters in more detail: no mention of sec. 42 and the myth of care, or much discussion of the "Cartesian" metaphysic which is so central to H's "Abbau"; but as a first time reader of S&Z, perhaps this was the best thing for me, that I solidify my understanding of key terms and ideas before delving into more contentious matters of interpretation. My experience was only slightly frustrated by the fact that I read the Maccquarrie translation and not the newer Stambaugh, which she uses.
