By Martin Heidegger

Martin Heidegger’s studying of Aristotle used to be one of many pivotal affects within the improvement of his philosophy. First released in German in 1981 as quantity 33 of Heidegger's amassed Works, this publication interprets a lecture direction he awarded on the college of Freiburg in 1931. Heidegger's cautious translation and his probing remark at the first 3 chapters of booklet IX of Metaphysics express the shut correlation among his phenomenological interpretation of the Greeks (especially of Aristotle) and his critique of metaphysics. also, Heidegger's war of words with Aristotle's Greek textual content makes an important contribution to modern scholarship on Aristotle, really the certainty of potentiality in Aristotle's notion. eventually, the booklet exemplifies Heidegger's reward for educating scholars find out how to learn a philosophical textual content and the way to query that textual content in a philosophical way.
