Summary "In the course of a marriage that lasted almost 60 years, Martin Heidegger and Elfride Petri were often apart, and the letter thus remained a vital means of communication right through to the final years." "The letters are snapshots of the ups and downs, the crises and everyday minutiae of Heidegger's life: his engagement, the building of the cabin at Todtnauberg, the part he played in the two world wars, the difficulties of his early professional career, financial problems, his dealings with women and his constant concern with expounding his ideas." "This selection from these many letters provides an invaluable insight into Martin and Elfride's life together, their friendships and their relationships, and sheds fresh light on the ideas and beliefs of one of the twentieth century's greatest philosophers."--BOOK JACKET.
