Sie wurden im selben Jahr 1889 geboren und im gleichen Alter 1911 von einer ungeheuren Leidenschaft des Philosophierens ergriffen, die ihre Denk- und Lebenswege beherrschte und einzigartig machte: Martin Heidegger und Ludwig Wittgenstein. Dabei waren sie der Herkunft nach grundverschieden: Wittgenstein entstammte einer großbürgerlichen Familie in der Metropole Wien, Heidegger kam aus einer badischen Kleinstadt und einfachen Verhältnissen. Aber beide gehören zu den bedeutendsten Philosophen des 20. Jahrhunderts, und für beide wurde die Auseinandersetzung mit dem Nationalsozialismus (auch Hitler war Jahrgang 1889) und den Katastrophen der Epoche ein zentrales Thema. Bestsellerautor Manfred Geier geht den Biographien der beiden Denker nach und beschreibt, wie andersartig ihre Lebenswege waren und wie divergierend ihre Gedanken sich entwickelten. «Sein und Zeit» hieß der Hauptwerk des einen, «Tractatus logico-philosophicus» das des anderen Autors. Während Heideggers Denken im Verlauf seines Lebens immer allgemeiner und abstrakter wurde, das Dasein hinter sich ließ und das «Sein» selbst zur Sprache bringen wollte, begann Wittgenstein, sich immer genauer und differenzierter den alltäglichen Sprachgebrauch anzuschauen und in den Zusammenhang menschlicher Lebensformen einzubinden. Eine faszinierende Spurensuche mit überraschenden Einsichten und Ergebnissen.

Heidegger

Martin Heidegger is one of the twentieth century’s most influential, but also most cryptic and controversial philosophers. His early fusion of phenomenology with existentialism inspired Sartre and many others, and his later critique of modern rationality inspired Derrida and still others. This introduction covers the whole of Heidegger’s thought and is ideal for anyone coming to his work for the first time. John Richardson centres his account on Heidegger’s persistent effort to change the very kind of understanding or truth we seek. Beginning with an overview of Heidegger’s life and work, he sketches the development of Heidegger’s thought up to the publication of Being and Time. He shows how that book takes up Husserl’s method of phenomenology and adapts it. He then introduces and assesses the key arguments of Being and Time under three headings—pragmatism, existentialism, and temporality—its three levels of analysis of human experience. Subsequent chapters introduce Heidegger’s later philosophy, including his turn towards a historical account of being, and new ideas about how we need to ‘think’ to get the truth about it; his influential writings on language, art, and poetry, and their role in the Western history of being; and his claim that this history has culminated in a technological relation to things that is deeply problematic, above all in the way it excludes the divine. The final chapter looks at Heidegger’s profound influence on several intellectual movements ranging from phenomenology to existentialism to postmodernism. A much-needed and refreshing introduction to this major figure, Heidegger is ideal reading for anyone coming to his work for the first time and will interest and stimulate students and scholars alike.

Wittgenstein and Heidegger

Ludwig Wittgenstein and Martin Heidegger are arguably the two most influential philosophers of the twentieth century. Their work not only reshaped the philosophical landscape, but also left its mark on other disciplines, including political science, theology, anthropology, ecology, mathematics, cultural studies, literary theory, and architecture. Both sought to challenge the assumptions governing the traditions they inherited, to question the very terms in which philosophy’s problems had been posed, and to open up new avenues of thought for thinkers of all stripes. And despite considerable differences in style and in the traditions they inherited, the similarities between Wittgenstein and Heidegger are striking. Comparative work of these thinkers has only increased in recent decades, but no collection has yet explored the various ways in which Wittgenstein and Heidegger can be drawn into dialogue. As such, these essays stage genuine dialogues, with aspects of Wittgenstein’s elucidations answering or problematizing aspects of Heidegger’s, and vice versa. The result is a broad-ranging collection of essays that provides a series of openings and provocations that will serve as a reference point for future work that draws on the writings of these two philosophers.

"The Philosophy of Heidegger" is a readable and reliable overview of Heidegger's thought, suitable both for beginners and advanced students. A striking and refreshing feature of the work is how free it is from the jargon and standard idioms of academic philosophical writing. Written in straightforward English, with many illustrations and concrete examples, this book provides a very accessible introduction to such key Heideggerian notions as in/authenticity, falling, throwness, moods, temporality, earth, world, enframing, etc. Organized under clear, no-nonsense headings, Watt's exposition avoids complicated involvement with the secondary literature, or with wider philosophical debates, which gives his writing a fresh, immediate character. Ranging widely across Heidegger's numerous writings, this book displays an impressively thorough knowledge of his corpus, navigating the difficult relationship between earlier and later Heidegger texts, and giving the reader a strong sense of the basic motives and overall continuity of Heidegger's thought.
