This is a transcript of lectures given relatively late in the author's life and is a good representation of his later thought. It starts off with a discussion of thinking as phenomenon, and poses a series of questions about the different ways thinking is approached and referred to. A discussion of Nietzsche takes up much of the middle part, and a philologically inspired discussion of some Ancient Greek and other words for thinking follows. Overall it's pretty abstruse, and there is a certain mystical quality throughout which makes things hard to understand, and which might be unexpected if you're looking for a more straightforward book about reflexive cognition or epistemology. If you haven't read Being and Time it's probably a good idea to do so before taking on this one. ( )

"For an acquaintance with the thought of Heidegger, What Is Called Thinking? is as important as Being and Time. It is the only systematic presentation of the thinker's late philosophy and . . . it is perhaps the most exciting of his books."--Hannah Arendt
