A comprehensive commentary on both Divisions of Heidegger's Being and Time, for newcomers and specialists alike. Beginning with a non- technical exposition of Heidegger's question, "What does it mean to be?" the material gradually increases its closeness of focus on the text, explaining key notions of the original with the help of concrete illustrations and reference to certain works Heidegger composed both before and after Being and Time. King conducted seminars on Heidegger at the University of Edinburgh. Some material was published as Heidegger's Philosophy: A Guide to His Basic Thought in 1964 by Macmillan Company, New York, and by Basil Blackwell, Oxford.
