one of those "oh, *that's* why he's important* books.

wherein he lays out central of his ideas in fashions so simple one wonders wherein lay the difficulty in others of his main works.

interesting though 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 stab...more
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

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.
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.

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

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
