Description

Phenomenological Interpretations of Aristotle, the text of a lecture course presented at the University of Freiburg in the winter of 1921–22, was first published in 1985 as volume 61 of Heidegger’s collected works. Preceding Being and Time, the work shows Heidegger introducing novel vocabulary as he searches for his genuine philosophical voice. Here, Heidegger first takes up the role of the definition of philosophy and then elaborates a conception of 'factical life,'or human life as it is lived concretely in relation to the world, a relation he calls 'caring.' Heidegger’s descriptions of the movement of life are original, striking, and unique to this lecture course. As he works out a phenomenology of factical life, Heidegger lays the groundwork for a phenomenological interpretation of Aristotle, one of the pivotal influences in the development of his philosophy. As an early articulation of Heidegger’s thought, this book will be an indispensable resource for scholars and students.

Reviews

“Preceding Being and Time, this work shows Heidegger attempting, through the use of novel vocabulary, to find his personal philosophical voice. As he elaborates a phenomenology of factical life—concrete human life as it is lived in relation to the world—Heidegger prepares readers for actual engagement in the work of phenomenology and introduces a phenomenological interpretation of Aristotle, one of the pivotal influences in the development of his philosophy. ”
