Overview

The text of Martin Heidegger’s 1927–28 university lecture course on Emmanuel Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason presents a close interpretive reading of the first two parts of this masterpiece of modern philosophy. In this course, Heidegger continues the task he enunciated in Being and Time as the problem of dismatling the history of ontology, using temporality as a clue. Within this context the relation between philosophy, ontology, and fundamental ontology is shown to be rooted in the genesis of the modern mathematical sciences. Heidegger demonstrates that objectification of beings as beings is inseparable from knowledge a priori, the central problem of Kant’s Critique. He concludes that objectification rests on the productive power of imagination, a process that involves temporality, which is the basic constitution of humans as beings.

Contains the text of Martin Heidegger's 1927-28 university lecture course on Immanuel Kant's . Rather than writing a commentary on the work, Heidegger places it in the domain of the question of being. He proposes that ontological knowledge of beings is inseparable from Kant's knowledge, and that in laying the foundations of metaphysics as science, Kant was also limiting the range of possible knowledge of pure reason. A translator's preface briefly describes the history of the lectures. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
