The Beginning of Western Philosophy

Interpretation of Anaximander and Parmenides

Volume 35 of Heidegger's Complete Works comprises a lecture course given at the University of Freiburg in 1932, five years after the publication of Being and Time. During this period, Heidegger was at the height of his creative powers, which are on full display in this clear and imaginative text. In it, Heidegger leads his students in a close reading of two of the earliest philosophical source documents, fragments by Greek thinkers Anaximander and Parmenides. Heidegger develops their common theme of Being and non-being and shows that the question of Being is indeed the origin of Western philosophy. His engagement with these Greek texts is as much of a return to beginnings as it is a potential reawakening of philosophical wonder and inquiry in the present.

About the Authors

Richard Rojcewicz is Scholar-in-Residence in the Philosophy Department at Duquesne University. He has translated (with Daniela Vallega-Neu) Heidegger's Contributions to Philosophy: Of the Event (IUP, 2012) and The Event (IUP, 2012).

Reviews

"A review cannot do justice to the entire richness of this lecture course . . . . The present course is thus in every sense a transition: harking back to the temporal analyses of Being from the period of 'Being and Time' and anticipating the increasing preoccupation with the Presocratics and with Greek tragedy that would mark Heidegger's work from the mid-1930s onward.10/4/16"—Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

"Publication of this volume will motivate further scholarship on Heidegger's relation to the Pre-Socratics and on the intertwined topics of ontological difference, truth, metaphysics, and attunement. It will serve novice and seasoned Heidegger scholars alike."—Jerome Veith, Seattle University
