Two stars given by measure of Heidegger standards. Too many passages are under-argued, especially in contexts where it seems like he is about to come through. This text is probably more useful for Aristotle scholars believe it or not - i.e. *not* people interested in Heidegger. A fairly close and interesting reading of Metaphysics IX Ch.1-3 nonetheless.

Heidegger thinks with and through Aristotle on some of the key questions of Metaphysics. A must for anyone interested in Heidegger, Aristotle or Metaphysics.
