*From Phenomenology to Thought, Errancy, and Desire:
  Essays in Honor of William J. Richardson, S.J.*

For both continental and analytic styles of philosophy, the thought of Martin
Heidegger must be counted as one of the most important influences in
contemporary philosophy.  In this book, essays by internationally noted
scholars, ranging from David B. Allison to Slavoj Zizek, honour the 
interpretive contributions of WilliamJ. Richardson's pathbreaking
*Heidegger: Through Phenomenology to Thought.*  The essays move from
traditional phenomenology to the idea of essential (another) thinking,
the questions of translation and existential expressions of the turn in
Heidegger's thought, the intersection of politics and language, the philosophic
significance of Jacques Lacan, and several essays on science and technology.
All show the influence of Richardson's first study.  A valuable emphasis 
appears in Richardson's interpretation of Heidegger's conception of 
*die Irre*, interpreted as Errancy, set in its current locus in a discussion
of Heidegger's debacle with the political in his involvement with National

The book is volume 133 in the Phaenomenologica Series

But it is one of its priciest -- thus if your library balks at ordering it,
please encourage them...

ISBN 0-7923-3567-8  
Kluwer Academic Publishers, Dordrecht, 1995
List: $250.00  (NLG 340/GBP 150)

Sorry for the length (!)
but Bill Richardson is 75 this month
and this book collection in his honor is a collection representing a wide
range of Heidegger studies over the more than 30 years since
the publication of his own study of Heidegger ... a book many remember
for the important help it offered in coming to grips with so
difficult a thinker.

If anyone deserves a festschrift and our thanks,
more than a few will agree that Bill Richardson is
right up there with the best of them.

I am not encouraging ANY personal orders (book costs too damn much)
but do encourage your libraries to order the book ...

With my thanks for your kind indulgence,

Babette E. Babich
