Essays in Honor of Jacob Klein [Book Review]

Review of Metaphysics 33 (1):185-188 (1979)

Jacob Klein used to say that he learned something from Heidegger "that what another man had thought and written might actually and genuinely be understood". This characteristically understated view means, not only that intersubjectivity is possible, but more, that we have access to our past. Objectivity, and thus liberating education, is possible in a world which seems to preclude it. This made for a life of learning and teaching and Saint John’s College, Annapolis. It is thus correct that a festschrift honoring his contribution be published.
