The Essence of Truth
On Plato's Cave Allegory and Theaetetus. Bloomsbury Revelations
The Essence of Truth is an examination of the most fundamental theme in Heidegger's philosophy: the difference between truth as 'the unhiddenness of beings' and truth as 'the correctness of propositions'. Based on a course of lectures delivered at the University of Freiburg in 1932, the book presents Heidegger's original analysis of Plato's philosophy and represents an important discussion of a fundamental subject of philosophy through the ages.

What Reviewers Are Saying
"It would be difficult to overestimate the importance of these lecture courses for an understanding of the development of Heidegger's thinking; yet in the very act of illuminating this development, they also throw new light on many of the most fundamental ideas figuring in 'Being and Time' itself. This book will be essential reading for anyone looking for the argumentation behind Heidegger's unique conception of human existence."--Ian Lyne, University of Durham
