Summary

A revised translation of Heidegger's most important work.

"Stambaugh's new version has large virtues, and improves on the only alternative. It is best suited to beginning or general audiences. These will find its spare and unobtrusive apparatus, which lets the text stand out more simply on its own and not bristling with flagged complications, a decisive virtue ... as a supplement or for comparison, or as a vehicle for reacquainting oneself with the work, it gives excellent service." - TLS

"This new translation ... offers the textbook in a more precise and understandable English than earlier editions." - Library Journal

"Stambaugh's greatest merit as a translator is her ability to render the most difficult of Heidegger's prose... into an English that remains both elegant and as faithful as possible To The original ... the bilingual glossary and index in the back are marvelously helpful ... Any translation of Sein und Zeit cannot help being a welcome contribution, even a significant landmark, within the world of Heidegger scholarship." MLN

The Stambaugh translation captures the vitality of the language and thinking animating Heidegger's original text. This textbook is also the most comprehensive edition insofar as it includes the marginal notes made by Heidegger in his own copy of Being and Time, and takes into account the many changes that he made in the final German edition of 1976

The revisions to the original translation correct ambiguities and problems that have become apparent since the translation first appeared. Bracketed German words have also been liberally inserted both to clarify and highlight words and connections that are difficult to translate, and to link this translation more closely to the German text. This definitive edition will serve the needs of scholars well acquainted with Heidegger's work and of students approaching Heidegger for the first time.

At last a real translation masterpiece March 26, 2011

I would consider Being and Time to be one of the greatest works in all of philosophy, a textbook which needs to be recognized as one of the great achievements of Twentieth Century thought.
