Some of the critics seem to think that there has been a considerable change in Heidegger's outlook, if not immediately after the publication of "Being and Time," at least since the first essay on Hoelderlin (1936). I for one do not share in this opinion. In my view, the themes of all the four essays, but especially of the two philosophical ones, are directly and most intimately related to "Being and Time," but not so much to the first two published Sections as rather to the third one on "Time and Being." (p. 119).
Heidegger's Inaugural Lecture, "What is Metaphysics?" is included at the end of this book. On page 349, an undated "Postscript" admits that "The question `What is Metaphysics?' remains a question. For those who persevere with this question the following postscript is more of a foreword." The obstacles encountered in the preceding lecture are described as "good. It will make our questioning more genuine." (p. 351).Read more ›
