In this book Christopher Yates offers an insightful and thorough account of the convergences of Heidegger's and Schelling's thought. His mastery of the full range of both philosophers' work is impressive. One of the most decisive results established by Yates' research is that Heidegger's concern with the question of imagination is not limited to his earlier works such as Kant and the Problem of Metaphysics but rather extends across the entire itinerary of his thought. -- John Sallis, Frederick J. Adelmann S.J. Professor of Philosophy, Boston College, USA 20130305 Heidegger regarded Schelling as Germany's most important philosopher. Yates gives Schelling an even fuller voice in this encounter, allowing him to enter into dialogue with Heidegger on the poetic imagination, a problem to which both made singular and lasting contributions. Lovers of Heidegger, Schelling, and the poetic arts will welcome this valuable study. -- Jason Wirth, Professor of Philosophy, Seattle University, USA 20130314 This marvellous book is at once beautifully written, learned, and accessible to anyone interested in the role of imagination. Every university library should find a place for it, and every personal library of professors and graduate students in the Continental philosophical tradition should do so as well. Through his treatment of Heidegger/Schelling and imagination, Yates both honours and advances this still vital issue. --Bernard Freydberg, Scholar in Residence, Duquesne University, USA 20130314
