A well-researched study for those interested in the intersections between analytic and continental philosophy, and it continues Braver’s quest for a new way of doing philosophy as a kind of hybrid enterprise composed of those two strands.—Review of Metaphysics—
Few have attempted to read [Heidegger and Wittgenstein] so as to bring them into productive dialogue. Lee Braver’s publication is the latest of these relatively rare efforts.

With his recent work on Wittgenstein and Heidegger, Lee Braver has accomplished something remarkable: he has given us an account of two of the past century’s most challenging thinkers that is as insightful and provocative as it is eminently readable…a joy to read…This is an exciting a fertile work, an invaluable reference for anyone interested in the emerging dialogue between the continental and analytic traditions.
—Journal of the British Society for Phenomenology
The book is a pleasure to read, due both to its clarity and its humor. Braver has mastered a vast primary and secondary literature; the book is truly a scholarly tour de force. It is also rare to find a philosopher who is fluent in both philosophical traditions. This is a terrific book, and it is recommended for anyone interested in Wittgenstein or Heidegger, the analytic-continental schism, and twentieth-century attempts to overcome the traditional philosophical project.

Lee Braver’s Groundless Grounds is an ambitious and groundbreaking volume for making comparisons of two intellectual giants seldom juxtaposed…Braver’s project, which in my estimation succeeds well, is to bridge what each thinking was doing, finding parallels in Wittgenstein and Heidegger where former scholars saw distinct, possibly incommensurable, ideas and approaches.
