The young Heidegger: Assimilation and radicalization of Aristotle's philosophical practice

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This article explores the fruitful dialogue that the young Heidegger held with Aristotle's philosophy during the first years of his university teaching in Friburg and Marburg, respectively. The study of this period of the young Heidegger's thought allows us to reconstruct the trajectory of his appropiation and radicalization of Aristotle's practical writings; a subject that could have seemed strange some years ago, when the documentary evidence provided by the recent publication of the teachings on this particular topic was not yet available. In his effort to elaborate a hermeneutics of facticity that deals with the ontological structures of human existences, Hedeigger, we contend, productively assimilates and transforms those aspects related to the practical and the dynamic behaviour of life, which are described in Aristotle's work.
