Phenomenological Interpretations of Aristotle

Indiana University Press has just released a paperback copy of Heidegger’s Phenomenological Interpretations of Aristotle: Initiation into Phenomenological Research, translated by Richard Rojcewicz.

“This book is an indispensable resource for the study of Heidegger’s thought because it provides a very early articulation of concepts that are central to Heidegger’s philosophy, such as care, facticity, nothingness, and temporality.” —Robert Metcalf, University of Colorado, Denver

Phenomenological Interpretations of Aristotle is the text of a lecture course presented at the University of Freiburg in the winter of 1921–1922. In this course, Heidegger first takes up the role of the definition of philosophy and then elaborates a unique analysis of “factical life,” or human life as it is lived concretely in relation to the world, a relation he calls “caring.” As he works out a phenomenology of factical life, Heidegger lays the groundwork for a phenomenological interpretation of Aristotle, whose influence on Heidegger’s philosophy was pivotal.
