Translated by Oskar Frankfurt:
Publisher: Translation Press
ISBN: 978-0-615-34694-6

However, the author would be well advised to expand on, and to contextualize, the next edition of his translation, so that the work becomes accessible to a much wider readership than that to which it is currently available
