Heidegger is widely regarded as the 20th Century's most original philosopher. Towards the Definition of Philosophy brings together - in their first English translation - two of his seminal lecture courses, The Idea of Philosophy and the Problem of Worldview and Phemelogy and Transcendental Philosophy Value, as well as the lecture, On the Nature of the University and Academic Study. The volume also includes a short glossary.
