about this item

Heraclitus is the first English translation of Volume 55 of the Martin Heidegger Gesamtausgabe. The book comprises two lecture courses delivered by Heidegger at the University of Freiburg during the summers of 1943 and 1944.

Translating and interpreting the fragments of Heraclitus in idiosyncratic style, Heidegger presents an essential rethink of previous translations of the philosopher, questioning his interpretive authority. Moreover, his unique elucidation of the fragments sheds light on the broader field of Occidental thinking and its logic, including discussion of many other significant thinkers and poets such as Parmenides, Plato, Aristotle, Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, Hölderlin, and Rilke.
