Holderlin's Hymn "The Ister"

£10.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Title: Holderlin's Hymn "The Ister"

Author: Martin Heidegger

Translated by William McNeill and Julia Davis

The present translation makes available for the first time in English the text of Martin Heidegger's third and last major lecture course on the work of the German poet and philosopher Friedrich Holderlin. Delivered in the summer semester of 1942 at the University of Freiburg, this course was first published in 1984 as volume 53 of the Heidegger Gesamtausgabe. Heidegger had previously offered two other major lecture courses on Holderlin: a 1934/35 course on Holderlin's hymns "Germania" and "The Rhine" (published as volume 39 of the Gesamtausgabe), and a course on the hymn "Remembrance" ("Andenken"), delivered in 1941/42 and available as Gesamtausgabe volume 52. The third course, which proved to be the last (although Heidegger had originally planned a more comprehensive interpretation), was devoted to the hymn "The Ister" but includes an extensive interpretation of the second choral ode from Sophocles' Antigone traditionally known as the "ode to man." This interpretation, which occupies half the present volume, maybe compared to an earlier,much more concise interpretation of the chorus that appeared in Heidegger's 1935 course Introduction to Metaphysics.

The book is in overall good condition throughout.

The book has blue boards and gilt lettering to the spine.

The book has no dust jacket.
