پایان جلد اول.
هیچ یک از کتاب های هایدگر را نتوانسته ام بار اول به خوبی بفهمم. قطعا آن بخشی را که نیاز دارم باید یک بار دیگر بخوانم.
اما بد نیست خلاصه ای بسیار موجز از محتوای کتاب به دست دهم.
۱. نام کتاب نیچه است و هایدگر می کوشد فلسفه ی او را توضیح دهد.
۲. از نظر هایدگر فلسفه ی نیچه را عمدتا باید در "اراده به سوی قدرت" جستجو کرد.
۳. پرسش فلسفه در تاریخ متافیزیک غربی این بوده است:موجود چیست؟ نیچه پاسخ می دهد:اراده به سوی قدرت. وجود چیست؟ بازگشت جاودان همان.
۴. اگر وجود موجود، اراده به سوی قدرت است، م

Unfolds his ideas such a simple fashion, makes you wonder wherein lay the difficulty in some of his other main works.

Interesting comparing it to Mindfulness [Besinnung], which was written in the middle of this Nietzsche series, for therein he expresses some seemingly divergent sentiments. The amount of anger and energy in Mindfulness he levels against deriving being as mere beingness, that is the being of existing and stable beings(?), directly at odds with how, herein, "Being" (to use DFK's sim

I completely disagree with Heidegger's interpretation of Nietzsche, particularly his lack of attention to Nietzsche's social and cultural philosophy (which is essentially how I read him...Heidegger's later analysis of Nietzsche's confrontation with nihilism, which I haven't read yet, sounds much more like Nietzsche to me), but it is nonetheless a beautiful and provocative book on its own merits, especially where Heidegger discusses Nietzsche's unthinkable thought, his crucial unpublished texts, ...more

I have wanted to read this book for years. Then I did. It was pretty good.

Almost half way thru. I've read some of Heidegger a smaller books before, and know much of his concepts from being and time. He's usually not easy to read or understand and his translations make it every harder. But this book is surprisingly better. I think its partly because its adopted from his lectures, which would make total sense. Heidegger hated writing stuff down. There was fluency in the immediacy of speech that lost itself when the mind was forced to cough up with words to explain what ...more

An excellent seminar work on Nietzsche. The focus here is upon the doctrines of 'Will to Power' and 'Eternal Recurrence'. Heidegger's analysis provides a real worth as to the relation of such to Entelecheia, Hereclitean flux and the process of Becoming. Heidegger's language is as dense as ever, yet is here presented in an illuminating form. For the student of Nietzsche, here is an invaluable insight into his core concepts.

I am so lucky that I got to read this book, what a rewarding experience. Along side the first two volumes I read the Will to Power and Thus Spoke Zarathustra, the two pieces that Heidegger focuses on in the work. The will to power as art, the will to power as the eternal recurrence. Being. Some good stuff. As a counselor, I am so glad I am reading this work and getting familiar with 'the thought of thoughts'. Now on to the next two volumes!

It has been said that this is the book that gave Marin Heidegger the divine madness that characterizes his work. It's based on lecture courses that Heidegger created early in his career. This isn't my favorite Heidegger book, but it is indeed fascinating. I don't recommend this as an introductin to Heidegger's work.

Didn't rate the book as the failing might be on my part. I was halfway through the book when I realized that I couldn't remember a single thing I had read. Just too dense for me?

I don't really agree with Heidegger on his interpretation of Nietzsche, but it's sure a lot more pleasurable to read him writing about this than it is to try and slog through his original work.

Really breathes great new life into Nietzsche while containing a great deal of the maturation of Heidegger's though en route from a very prolonged engagement with Kant and Aristotle.

Martin Heidegger (1889–1976) was a German philosopher whose work is perhaps most readily associated with phenomenology and existentialism, although his thinking should be identified as part of such philosophical movements only with extreme care and qualification. His ideas have exerted a seminal influence on the development of contemporary European philosophy. They have also had an impact far beyo ...more
