Heidegger: A Very Short Introduction

By Michael Inwood | Go to book overview

Further Reading

The best account of Heidegger's life available in English is Martin Heidegger: A Political Life, by H. Ott ( London, 1993). Heidegger's lifelong friend H. W. Petzet gives an interesting and sympathetic portrait of him in Encounters and Dialogues with Martin Heidegger, 1929-1976 ( Chicago, 1993).

A good starting-point for a study of Heidegger's own works is his Basic Writings, ed. D. F. Krell ( London, 2nd edn, 1993). This contains the introduction to BT, OWA, and nine other essays. Some of Heidegger's lectures are easier going than BT itself and make a good introduction to it. The translations of xx, xxiv, and xxvi are especially recommended. The lectures on Nietzsche, ed. D. F. Krell ( New York, 1979-87) provide an attractive and accessible introduction to Heidegger's later thought.

There are several good commentaries on BT. Heidegger on Being Human, by R. Schmitt ( New York, 1969), stresses the similarity between Heidegger and Wittgenstein. H. L. Dreyfus, in Being-in-the-World: A Commentary on Heidegger's Being and Time, Division I ( Cambridge, Mass., 1991), pits Heidegger against the 'artificial intelligence' model of the human mind. J. Richardson's Existential Epistemology: A Heideggerian Critique of the Cartesian Project ( Oxford, 1986) can profitably be read alongside L. Stevenson, "'Heidegger on Cartesian Scepticism'", British Journal for the History of Philosophy, 1/ 1 ( Feb. 1993), 81-98. Also useful are
