"Starting from Leibniz's principle of sufficient reason …, Heidegger reflects on the relation of modern and ancient philosophy and of poetry and thinking…an accurate and readable English translation." – "Choice." "Recreates the intellectual footwork necessary for Heidegger's leap from the terra cognita of modernity into the existential questions of the age of technology." – Michael Heim. "The Principle of Reason", the text of an important and influential lecture course that Martin Heidegger gave in 1955-56, takes as its focal point Leibniz's principle: nothing is without reason. Heidegger shows here that the principle of reason is in fact a principle of being. One of Heidegger's most artfully composed texts, it also contains important discussions of language, translation, reason, objectivity, and technology – as well as remarkable readings of Leibniz, Kant, Aristotle, and Goethe, among others.
