Books by and about Martin Heidegger

As time goes by, I'll be listing here, along with links to, philosophy books that I've personally found to be of particular interest and value.

The Question Concerning Technology and Other Essays by Martin Heidegger, translated by William Lovitt$14.00
Description: "The revealing that rules throughout modern technology has the character of a setting-upon, in the sense of a challenging-forth. That challenging happens in that the energy concealed in nature is unlocked, what is unlocked is transformed, what is transformed is stored up, what is stored up is, in turn, distributed, and what is distributed is switched about ever anew.... Everywhere everything is ordered to stand by, to be immediately at hand, indeed to stand there just so that it may be on call for further ordering. Whatever is ordered about in this way has its own standing. We call it the standing-reserve [Bestand]."
What Is Called Thinking by Martin Heidegger, translated by Fred D. Wieck and J. Glenn Gray$11.20
20% off
Description: An important work for understanding Heidegger's later thinking.
Nietzsche: Volume I (The Will to Power as Art) and Volume II (The Eternal Recurrence of the Same) by Martin Heidegger$23.00
Nietzsche: Volume III (The Will to Power As Knowledge) and Volume IV (Nihilism) by Martin Heidegger$24.00
Description: Heidegger's four-volume questioning of the philosophy of Nietzsche. Personally, I see this work as Heidegger's self-criticism of his own youthful Nietzschean romanticism. "Nietzsche," in other words, is a stand-in here for Heidegger (a youthful "Nietzschean" Heidegger). At least this would help explain Heidegger's obvious distortion of Nietzsche's thinking (in that it is a critique of his own once distorted thinking). Still, if you want to understand the Heideggerian take on Nietzsche, here it is.
