Description

Volume 18 of Martin Heidegger's collected works presents his important 1924 Marburg lectures which anticipate much of the revolutionary thinking that he subsequently articulated in Being and Time. Here are the seeds of the ideas that would become Heidegger's unique phenomenology. Heidegger interprets Aristotle's Rhetoric and looks closely at the Greek notion of pathos. These lectures offer special insight into the development of his concepts of care and concern, being-at-hand, being-in-the-world, and attunement, which were later elaborated in Being and Time. Available in English for the first time, they make a significant contribution to ancient philosophy, Aristotle studies, Continental philosophy, and phenomenology.

This set of lectures from 1924 offers a refreshing and productive picture of Aristotle. . . . Heidegger opens up possibilities in these lectures for reading philosophy and for putting our thought in touch with the concrete. * Philosophy in Review * This text will be of vital interest to scholars interested in the genesis of Being and Time and Heidegger's early formulations of its central arguments in the 1920s. . . . [A]n important addition to Heidegger's works on Aristotle available in English.Vol. 48, No. 3, July 2010 * Journal of the History of Philosophy * We . . . have every reason to thank the translators for undertaking one of the most major Heidegger works to be published in recent years. * Bryn Mawr Classical Review *
