Overview

First published in 1988 as volume 63 of his Collected Works, Ontology—The Hermeneutics of Facticity is the text of Heidegger's lecture course at the University of Freiburg during the summer of 1923. In these lectures, Heidegger reviews and makes critical appropriations of the hermeneutic tradition from Plato, Aristotle, and Augustine to Schleiermacher and Dilthey in order to reformulate the question of being on the basis of facticity and the everyday world. Specific themes deal with the history of ontology, the development of phenomenology and its relation to Hegelian dialectic, traditional theological and philosophical concepts of man, the present situation of philosophy, and the influences of Aristotle, Luther, Kierkegaard, and Husserl on Heidegger's thinking. Students of Heidegger will find initial breakthroughs in his unique elaboration of the meaning of human experience and the "question of being," which received mature expression in Being and Time.

Editorial Reviews

European Legacy

"John van Buren’s translation should be read by anyone looking for an access point into Heidegger’s work because of his faithful and comprehensible way of rendering this difficult text. Any careful reader of Heidegger who is looking to better understand his work should also read this translation if for no other reason than to see, in nuce, the beginnings of Heidegger’s thought. Basically, anyone reading Heidegger should be reading this text." —European Legacy, Volume 15 Issue 7 2010

Daniel O. Dahlstrom

"With thematic trajectories pointing both toward and beyond Being and Time, this translation... is of enormous significance for students of the development of Heidegger's early thought." —Daniel O. Dahlstrom, Boston University
