Heidegger Becoming Phenomenological: Interpreting Husserl through Dilthey, 1916-1925


Add your own review!

Overview

This book sets the record straight about the greater influence of Dilthey than Husserl in Heidegger's initial formulation of his conception of phenomenology. Scharff shows how, in Heidegger's early lecture courses, phenomenology is presented as a genuine philosophical alternative, and explores our own current need for a phenomenological philosophy.

Reviews

As Scharff sees it, Heidegger's way of becoming phenomenological was not Husserl's, who regarded phenomenology as a theoretical-scientific attitude of a transcendental subject expositing its intentional objects, but rather Dilthey's, who situates it in the whole of life that is always already there as an articulated historical context that mutually correlates self and world into a meaningful whole. -- Theodore Kisiel, Distinguished Research Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, Northern Illinois University

Through a meticulous reading of the earliest courses Scharff reveals how Heidegger's grappling with Dilthey turned him into a phenomenologist of life and eventually of Dasein, in contrast to the transcendental consciousness of Husserl. Written with clarity and verve, this book leaves the Seinology of later commentaries in the dust and restores to Heidegger's work the existential vitality that is its birthright. -- Thomas Sheehan, Professor of Religious Studies, Stanford University
