Review of Heidegger's 'The Beginning of Western Philosophy'

Posted by Edward Willatt on Friday, June 24, 2016 Under: Architectonics
A review I wrote of Heidegger's The Beginning of Western Philosophy: Interpetation of Anaximander and Parmenides (Indiana University Press, 2015) has just appeared in Philosophy in Review.  In my previous blog post I talked about some of the problems and questions that arise in these lectures from 1932.  There is a danger of seeing here only an anti-scientific and mystical leaning here.  Yet Heidegger is self-aware and responds to concerns about his method of interpreting other thinkers.  Genuine concerns are raised about scientific methods and outlooks which deserve our consideration.
