The text which is hereby made available in translation originates as a lengthy appendix to Stein's main work Finite and Eternal Being. It was, however, left out of the first edition of this work (1950) and in the reprint of Edith Steins Werke 1 and thus the editors of the Collected Works of Edith Stein likewise left it for a future occasion. The omission has been emended in the new critical edition Edith Steins Gesamtausgabe, 2 and a completed English translation will follow in due course. The essay is divided into four sections, each concerned with one of Heidegger's (until then) published works: Being and Time Kant and the Problem of Metaphysics The Essence of Reasons and What is Metaphysics? About two thirds is taken up with an analysis of Being and Time, again simply divided into an 'Outline of the Argument' and an 'Evaluation'. The latter part addresses three questions: 'What is Dasein'? 'Is the Analysis of Dasein Accurate?' and 'Is it sufficient for adequately addressing the Question of the Meaning of Being?'.
