Heidegger - As Questões Básicas da Filosofia

The concept of truth plays a vital role in Heidegger's thought, and Basic Questions, a lecture course that Heidegger gave in 1937-38, offers a helpful elucidation of truth as he sees it. Frequently, philosophers think of truth as statements that match reality: "the lights are on in the lecture hall" is true if the lights are in fact on there. For Heidegger, this seeming commonplace is absurd. Truth in his view is the openness or unconcealment of being, a position that he traces to the pre-Socratics. He deploys his immense learning to trace the eclipse of the pre-Socratic notion throughout the history of philosophy by the doctrine of truth as correspondence. This excellent translation will be of great value to students of Heidegger's thought.
