  Martin Heidegger - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Heidegger was born to a rural family in Meßkirch, Germany, and raised to be a clergyman.
Heidegger's concepts of angst and Da-sein draw on Kierkegaard's notions of anxiety, the importance of subjective relation to the truth, existence in the face of death, the temporality of existence, and the importance of passionate affirmation of one's individual being-in-the-world.
Heidegger's refusal to adopt current concepts such as the fact-value distinction, his criticism of modern science and technology, and his refusal to offer an "ethical" component to his theory, claiming such a suggestion was a fundamental misunderstanding of his thought, often puzzled and confused philosophers.

 Heidegger   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-19)
Heidegger rightly claimed to be refining Husserl's descriptive, phenomenological method and to be extending it to the study of "human existence" or "the human condition", expressed in and by the German noun Dasein.
Heidegger's doctrine of death is metaphysically and theologically agnostic: he is not denying afterlife or personal resurrection, he is merely noting that as Dasein it is a possibility that death annihilates ourselves as we are, and even the religious (if they're honest) will acknowledge this (although they will deny that that possibility is the case).
Heidegger's rhetoric often reinforces this reading --being as a sort of dark and mysterious god to whom we must be subservient-- and it unfortunately reinforces all one's well-grounded suspicions about his later politics (i.e., a sort of submissiveness to the "sendings" of history and destiny).

 Heidegger's Reading of Heraclitus
Heidegger does not argue for his claim that the Greeks initially considered beings as a whole and Being itself as fuvsi§; he seems to base the claim on his own intuition gathered from close occupation with the texts of that culture--on the need for such a conception in order to make sense of these texts.
Heidegger does not strive to show that the contradictory can be, but rather that approaching beings (and Being) with the principle of contradiction vastly limits their possibilities by placing them in a framework derived from only a single facet (their presence) of their original overwhelming emergence from concealment.
Heidegger continues by seeking just what lies in "intensification," and determines it to indicate the fullness and purity of the coming to presence of that which the intensification touches: Za- signifies the pure letting-rise within appearing, gazing upon, breaking in upon, and advancing, and all their ways.

 Martin Heidegger - German Philosopher - Biography
Heidegger gained notoriety quickly as a phenomenologist, under the guidance of Husserl, becoming his assistant in 1919, and would later succeed him as professor of philosophy, at Freiburg.
Heidegger shifts the mode of the subject undergoing phenomenological investigation by immersing it into its own contemplation as a being both within language (time) and within the world, hence, between a concept of being and time.
In 1933, Heidegger was appointed the rector of the University of Freiburg.

 Heidegger
After studying with Husserl, Martin Heidegger undertook an academic career in Germany, lecturing with great success both in Marburg and at the University of Freiburg, where he served as Rector in 1933-34.
As a result, Heidegger was suspended from all teaching duties in the post-war era from 1945 to 1950.

 Martin Heidegger [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
Heidegger argues that the question of being would still provide a stimulus to researches of Plato and Aristotle, but it was precisely with them that the original experience of being of the early Greeks was covered over.
Heidegger attempts to demonstrate the nihilism of metaphysics in the history of being which is the history of being's oblivion.
Heidegger begins by asking about the multiple meanings of being and ends up conceding its multiplicity and acknowledging that there are multiple determinations or meanings of being in which being discloses itself in history.

 THE HEIDEGGER CASE   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-19)
Since "the Heidegger Case" --his involvement with the Nazis-- has been a hot topic in scholarly circles of late, it is important to address this issue, with both passionate honesty and hard-nosed lucidity.
Heidegger consented, so the story goes, as much because he did not want to compromise "the integrity of the university" as because he was, at the time, enthusiastic about the capacity of the Nazis to bring about a "cultural renewal" in Germany and reverse the national decline of the post-W.W.I, Weimar republic years.
Heidegger was also a determined and ruthless careerist, willing to intervene on behalf of dissident professors and students if it was politically opportune for him to do so, but just as willing to follow the party line and persecute them if it advanced his career.

 The Case of Martin Heidegger, Philosopher and Nazi Part 1: The Record
Heidegger's distinguished career as professor of philosophy at the University of Freiburg was marred by a singular event in his life.
Heidegger was born and raised in the Swabian town of Messkirch in the south of modern Germany.
Heidegger apologists have claimed that this address represented an attempt to assert the autonomy of the university against the Nazis' effort to subordinate the sciences to their reactionary doctrines.

 20th WCP: Heidegger On Traditional Language And Technological Language
Heidegger’s concern for the status of instruction in the mother tongue is, as we will see later, directly connected to his distinction between the two forms of language.
Heidegger finds one "symptom" of the growing power of the technological form of thinking in our increased use of designations consisting of abbreviations of words or combinations of their initials.
Heidegger's assessments of the metaphysical-technological interpretation and form of language are indisputably critical and charged with dramatic and ominous warnings.

Martin Heidegger is widely regarded as one of the central figures of the existentialist movement and has had a major influence in the areas of phenomenology and ontology.
Heidegger's contribution to philosophy is remarkably monolithic in its devotion to metaphysics and ontology.
Heidegger was greatly concerned about technical nihilism, and for a time believed that Nazism could provide a solution.

 Martin Heidegger (1889-1976)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-19)
Heidegger was born in Messkirch, Baden, on September 22, 1889.
Besides Husserl, Heidegger was especially influenced by pre-Socratics, by the Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard, and by the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche.
Heidegger's original treatment of such themes as human finitude, death, nothingness, and authenticity led many observers to associate him with existentialism, and his work had a crucial influence on the French existentialist Jean Paul Sartre.

 TRANSLATION AT THE MOUNTAIN OF DEATH
Heidegger himself was intermittently interested in Celan's work and came, whenever possible, to the rare public readings Celan gave in Germany.
This was indeed the case: old photos of Heidegger's Hütte show this wooden cube with a painted or carved star-motto on it, which seems to have been a piece of local folk-art.
The Hütte itself, which Heidegger had built in 1922, was not only his holiday house in the mountains, but also his essential work and thinking place and, maybe more importantly, the refuge he went to in times of trouble.

 Denis Dutton on Walter Kaufmann and Martin Heidegger
Heidegger’s peculiar coinages suggest “some warrant of rigor and scientific precision, but in fact the rigor is wholly spurious.” His whole project, Kaufmann claims, “was shaped decisively by his Roman Catholic upbringing, and it is therefore no cause for wonder that his philosophy...
There is a sense of the both innocent and mystical relation of hand and tool “which must be cleansed of the pretensions and illusions of abstract intellect.” From this, we come to the “stress on rootedness, on the intimacies of blood and remembrance which an authentic human being cultivates with his native ground.
Heidegger’s may have been an exceptional mind, but in some respects his ideas are as nauseatingly common as gulags in our afflicted century.

 Martin Heidegger
Martin Heidegger, the German philosopher, was born September 26th, 1889, to Friedrich and Johanna Heiddeger, in the Black Forest region of Messkirch.
Heidegger was impressed early on with Franz Brentano.
Heidegger's existential analytic follows the progression from an analysis of Dasein in terms of that which is "closest" to it: its "average everyday," existentiell, pre-ontological, pre- thematic, "lived" understanding of itself, towards the hidden meaning and ground of Dasein's primordial existential structure which lies concealed in its "everyday" understanding.

Martin Heidegger, one of Germany's foremost philosophers at the middle of the 20th century, was inspired to philosophy through Brentano's work Von der mannigfachen Bedeutung des Seienden nach Aristoteles (1862; “On the Multifarious Meaning of Being According to Aristotle”;).

Many of the top students in Heidegger's following in the 1920s and early 1930s were Jewish, and they would ultimately have to reconcile their associations and attachments to Heidegger (the person and the philosophical ideas) in response or reaction to his actions.
Arendt's problem was not just a 'Heidegger problem', but also a 'Jewish problem', in the sense of her writing allowing that the line between victim and villain was not as distinct as might be believed.
Heidegger argued that to neglect our defining moods and actions, as the tradition of Western reason had done, was to fall into a type of inauthentic, perfunctory existence.

 Martin Heidegger
On the basis of this work Heidegger was called (1928) to Freiburg to succeed Husserl in the chair of philosophy, which he occupied until his retirement in 1951.
Strongly influenced by Sören Kierkegaard, Heidegger delineated various aspects of human existence, such as “care,” “moods,” and the individual's relationship to death, and related the authenticity of being, as well as the anguish of modern society, to the individual's confrontation with his own temporality.
Heidegger considered himself the first thinker in the history of Western philosophy to have raised explicitly the question concerning the “sense of being,”; and he located the crisis of Western civilization in mass “forgetfulness of being.”; Among his other works are

 Glossary of People: He
Heidegger's philosophy drew on Plato, Aristotle, and the early Gnostics, but he was particularly interested in Søren Kierkegaard and Friedrich Nietzsche, the vitalist Wilhelm Dilthey and his teacher Edmund Husserl.
At Freiberg, Heidegger studied under Husserl, and Heidegger's work must be read through the lens of Phenomenology, as concerning the different ways of Being, not as studies of psychology or sociology.
Heidegger also gave solidly pro-Hitler speeches on subsequent occasions: “The Führer himself and he alone is the German reality, present and future, and its law.”.

 Joho the Blog: The Language Thing (Or: Heidegger Made Dense)
Heidegger seems to be suggesting a far more active role in the construction of language (and therefore) culture for those who think (philosophers?) and those who create (writers and poets?).
Heidegger's Big Point about language, at least as it affected me, is that it is not a medium of communication.
The "as-ness" of a thing is, Heidegger writes in Being and Time, totally contextual: a hammer can't be a hammer (for driving nails) without a context that includes nails, lumber, trees, humans as builders, humans as needers of shelter, etc. Words are also contextual; language is not a one-to-one relationship of grunt to thing.

Although the author's descriptions of Heidegger's methodology and vocabulary and his analyses of sections from Being and Time purport to make Heidegger's thinking accessible to first-time readers, it is unclear how this rephrasing and simplifying makes reading Being and Time more engaging.
Covering the entire range of Heidegger's thought, Polt skillfully communicates the essence of the philosopher, enabling readers, especially those new to his writings, to approach his works with confidence and insight.
Polt presents the questions Heidegger grappled with and the positions he adopted, and also analyzes persistent points of difference between competing schools of interpretation.

 Heidegger
In Heidegger's full-fledged existentialism, the primary task of philosophy is to understand Being itself, not merely our knowledge of it.
In the lecture, "What is Metaphysics?" Heidegger developed several of his themes in characteristically cumbersome language.
Although traditional learning focusses on what is, Heidegger noted, it may be far more illuminating to examine the boundaries of ordinary knowledge by trying to study what is not.
