Martin Heidegger is one of the twentieth century's most important philosophers. His ground-breaking works have had a hugely significant impact on contemporary thought through their reception, appropriation and critique. His thought has influenced philosophers as diverse as Sartre, Merleau-Ponty, Arendt, Adorno, Gadamer, Levinas, Derrida and Foucault, among others. In addition to his formative role in philosophical movements such as phenomenology, hermeneutics and existentialism, structuralism and post-structuralism, deconstruction and post-modernism, Heidegger has had a transformative effect on diverse fields of inquiry including political theory, literary criticism, theology, gender theory, technology and environmental studies. The Bloomsbury Companion to Heidegger is the definitive reference guide to Heidegger's life and work, presenting fifty-eight original essays written by an international team of leading Heidegger scholars. The volume includes comprehensive coverage of Heidegger life and contexts, sources, influences and encounters, key writings, major themes and topics, and reception and influence. This is the ideal research tool for anyone studying or working in the field of Heidegger Studies today.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The volume is very well organized. Arranging the topics historically provides a sense of the trajectory of Heidegger's life and thought. The book's structure makes it easy to dip in and out, reading articles on topics of interest without needing to start at the beginning. A valuable resource. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates and above. -- J. Donohoe, University of West Georgia * CHOICE *
[The Bloomsbury Companion to Heidegger] introduces and presents the works of the German philosopher in a new way. The essays in the volume enlighten and encourage those who wish to tackle complex Heidegger thought to persevere in reading and interpreting, paving the way to new philosophical reflections not only philosophically but also in many areas of the humanities. -- Gaetano Iaia, PFTIM Napoli * Aisthema, International Journal (Bloomsbury Translation) *
