American philosophy scholar McDonough discusses what he calls the most important book by German philosopher Heidegger (1889-1976). Published in 1927, he says Sein und Zeit has attracted attention from many, but is considered so obscure that the main task has been not to determine whether the ideas are true, but what the text actually says.
